Rapper Wyclef Jean was handcuffed in Los Angeles for “absolutely nothing,” the rapper said in a video posted to his Twitter account early Tuesday.
In the 18-second clip, Jean, 47, is seen with his arms behind his back and flanked by two police officers.
“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,” he continued.
“The LAPD have me in cuffs for absolutely no reason,” he added.
The video was posted to Jean’s account at 5:11 a.m., with the caption: “LAPD another case of mistaken identity. Black man with red bandanna robbed a gas station as I was in the studio working.”
It’s unclear yet why the officers detained him.
