American rapper Lloyd Banks offered fans $1,000 (GBP520) to name the culprit who threw beer at him at a Scottish gig.

The rapper, a member of 50 CENT's G-Unit posse, made the bizarre offer after a fan throw a plastic cup up on stage during his set at Glasgow's Barrowlands.

Fans were bemused when the rapper stopped in the middle of a song and said: "Hold up. I won't have things thrown on the stage. I've got $1,000 here for the person who can point out who did it."

Support acts, local DJs HESKY and BIG AL, believe the rapper was serious about the offer, saying, "This was coming from a man who was walking about the stage with about a million dollars worth of jewellery on."
