MC Hammer arrested for obstructing police officer

Washington, Feb 24 (ANI): MC Hammer was booked and released from Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, California after he was popped for obstructing an officer in the performance of their duties and resisting an officer.

However, the rapper paints a story of racial profiling by the police, claiming an officer pulled out his gun and randomly asked him, "Are you on parole or probation?" TMZ.com reported.

He thought it was all a joke until "he pulled out his guns, blew his whistle and yelled for help."

"Only thing more dangerous than a scared man with a gun, is a scared man with an agenda, a gun and a badge. I was citied for obstruction smh," he tweeted. (ANI)
