MC Hammer arrest yet another familiar story of celebrities being arrested? Not necessarily, at least according to the 1990s music icon, who took to Twitter to defend being arrested in Dublin, California this weekend.
MC Hammer was arrested this weekend and cited with obstructing a officer. And while Hammer was booked and had his mug shot taken, he feels that he was simply the victim of an angry, out of control officer.
Hammer jumped onto Twitter and laid out the entire situation for all of his followers.
“chubby elvis looking dude was tapping on my car window, I rolled down the window and he said'"Are you on parole or probation?"
“While I was handing him my ID he reached in my car and tried to pull me out the car but forgot he was on a steady donut diet. ..”
“It was comical to me until he pulled out his guns, blew his whistle and yelled for help (MallCop) !!! But make no mistake he's dangerous ..”
“only thing more dangerous than a scared man with a gun, is a scared man with an agenda, a gun and a badge. I was citied for obstruction smh”
“You have to know me to understand I was laughing when he was grunting and pulling on me .. I had just left the weight room ..”
Hammer appeared to suggest that race could’ve been involved in the incident with the officer, as he also tweeted the following:
“I will now answer his question, contrary to his personal beliefs, all people of color are not on parole or probation fat boy !!!”
