MILWAUKEE -- Georgia singer Jacquees was detained and cited for disorderly conduct at Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport Sunday, according to citation records from the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office.

According to a deputy's report, the incident started when Jacquees (born Rodriquez J. Broadnax) was in a verbal argument with someone in the baggage claim area. After the deputy told the two involved to go their separate ways, Jacquees reportedly refused, "getting closer" to the person he was yelling at.

After telling Jacquees to stop several times, the deputy says the singer continued to "scream and sing using foul language" in front of other people. The deputy warned Jacquees to stop or be cited for being disorderly conduct.

That upset the singer, who reportedly responded, "You're just a white boy with a badge, f**k you." He also flipped off the deputy, according to the citation.

Jacquees eventually complied with the deputy's requests and was detained, the citation says. While he was being escorted, the deputy says Jacquees "continued to scream and use foul language telling citizens to record what was happening to him."

Broadnax faces a $484 fine and is not required to appear in court.
