In an unfornuate situation...

 

 

Wyclef Jean had a long, eventful night.

Apparently, he was handcuffed and detained by police after they mistaken him for a robbery suspect. While in handcuffs, Wyclef had someone record the incident and post it to his social media pages. Peep the clips above and below:

 

 

Wyclef said he was pulled over early Tuesday morning after a recording session that resulted in him being detained. Police were reportedly looking for a robbery suspect wearing a red bandana and Wyclef just so happened to be wearing a red bandana. Let’s hope that’s not the only resemblance he had with the suspect.

"LAPD another case of mistaken identity. Black man with red bandana robbed a gas station as I was in the studio working but im in handcuffs?" he tweeted.

The entertainer tweeted and posted on Instagram that the LAPD had arrested him, but it was actually the L.A. County Deputies who mistaken his identity. And the LAPD didn’t waste any time to “clear” their name:

Hmph.

It’s reported the robbery suspect they were actually looking for was eventually apprehended, but his name has not been released.

A spokesperson for Wyclef released a statement calling for L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, LAPD chief Charlie Beck and the LA Sheriff's Department to formally investigate racial profiling.
