So… what happened?

According to the photographer who captured the dispute, Malcolm came out of the event (presumably to get a breather), and security wanted him to move away from the entrance.

Malcolm tried to explain that he was part of the event, but they were not trying to hear it.

That’s when the police got involved and physically removed him from the entrance.

Once things settled down, Malcolm M. Mays began taking photos with fans.

That’s when a staff member realized he was someone notable.

After speaking to Malcolm, he was allowed back into the event.
