Factual error: At the end when the cops come after the fights. Ice Cube seems to be able to 1. tell the cops who to arrest even though the cops just arrived. And 2.

In reality everyone would have been arrested in handcuffs, questioned at the scene, and only released when or if it was determined they were not doing anything illegal.

Question: What was Deebo in jail for? I know at the beginning of the movie it shows a flashback with the police showing up after the fight, but why would they arrest him?


Chosen answer: It's not stated, but most likely after everyone witnessed someone finally standing up to Deebo that people gained the courage to testify against him. Most likely breaking and entering charges (as he did at Stanley's house) and assault.
