Wyclef Jean detained by LAPD: ‘Another case of mistaken identity’

Wyclef Jean was detained and held in handcuffs by LA police in what he described in a video posted to Twitter early Tuesday as “another case of mistaken identity.”

The video is 18 seconds long, and in it, Jean can be seen with his hands behind his back in handcuffs.

“Ya’ll see the police have handcuffs on me,” he said. “They just took off my Haitian bandanna. That’s what’s going on with Wyclef in L.A. right now.”

“The LAPD have me in cuffs for absolutely no reason,” he added.

Jean posted the video to his Twitter account along with this caption: “LAPD another case of mistaken identity. Black man with red bandanna robbed a gas station as I was in the studio working.”

The post Wyclef Jean detained by LAPD: ‘Another case of mistaken identity’ appeared first on theGrio.
