A member of the 1990s rap group Brownside plans to turn himself in to authorities Wednesday after a video clip posted on social media to launch the band’s comeback prompted an LAPD investigation and initially caused safety concerns among officers.

Los Angeles police Officer Liliana Preciado said the rapper had not turned himself in to detectives by 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.
