    Young told deputies the man was in front of his home, blocking his driveway, and that he asked the man to leave.

    The 51-year-old artist was searched, handcuffed and briefly detained in a patrol car while deputies investigated the claims, according to the sheriff's department. Deputies said Young was cooperative with deputies and consented to a search.

    Young claimed the man drove away after the initial encounter, but immediately returned and parked near the same location. Young said he pulled out his cellphone and started recording the man, who then drove away, and denied threatening the man, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

    The man insisted Young had a handgun, but a weapon was not found at the scene, authorities said.
