ODESSA, Tx. (KOSA) - A new video filmed by a witness who wishes to remain anonymous shows rapper Tone Loc getting into a heated exchange at Midland International Air & Space Port before being handcuffed by security.

In the video, the rapper exchanges shouts and swears between a man and woman repeatedly saying "F--- your Confederate s---."
