Rapper and actor Wyclef Jean just posted a video of himself being handcuffed by Los Angeles police officers.
Apparently, the fracas was a case of mistaken identity. They apparently mistook the ex Fugees rapper for a robber.
“LAPD another case of mistaken identity,” the Haitian musician wrote in a tweet today, March 21, 2017. adding, “Black man with red bandana robbed a gas station as I was in the studio working but I’m in handcuffs?”
The 47-year-old included a video of the incident, showing at least two police officers stopping him in front of a cop car.
Jean was shown with his hands behind his back while he addressed the camera.
“They just took off my Haitian bandana,” he said in the short video posted to twitter.
“That’s what’s going on with Wyclef in L.A. right now. The LAPD have me in cuffs for absolutely nothing.”
It’s unclear yet why the officers detained him.
