Wyclef Jean was reportedly pulled over and handcuffed after police mistook him for an armed robbery suspect early this morning in West Hollywood, Los Angeles.
According to law enforcement officials, Wyclef’s vehicle matched the description of a car used in an armed robbery in the area.
One of Wyclef’s associates recorded video of the incident. Wyclef later posted the video to his Instagram with a caption that read,
“I was asked by the police to Put my hands up. Then I was told do not move. I was instantly hand cuffed before being asked to identify myself and before being told why. In the process I said my name and told them they have wrong person. They proceeded to ignore me and I was treated like a criminal. I am sure no father wants his sons or daughters to see him in Handcuffs especially if he is innocent. As some one who has law enforcers in my family, I was appalled by the bahavior of the LAPD.”
