MC Hammer arrested
While other stars were locking up awards, MC Hammer was just getting locked up. The “Can’t Touch This” rapper was arrested during a traffic stop in northern California, where he claims he was the victim of racial profiling.
Hammer tweeted on Saturday that he was pulled over by a Dublin, California, cop who supposedly asked him, “Are you on parole or probation?” When the rapper gave the cop his ID, he claims that the officer then tried to pull him out of the car.
Authorities told the Oakland Tribune that was arrested Thursday for obstructing an officer and resisting an officer. They did not however speak on Hammer’s claims of how the incident went down.
