MC Hammer claims he was the victim of racial profiling.
The rapper was arrested for obstructing an officer Friday in Dublin, California, prompting him to vent his anger on Twitter. Hammer wrote that was sitting in his car when a deputy approached, tapped on the window and asked him, "Are you on parole or probation?"
Hammer tweeted the deputy then attempted to pull him from his car. He wrote, “It was comical to me until he pulled out his guns, blew his whistle and yelled for help.” He said he was “insulted and humored” by the incident.
A law enforcement rep said Hammer was taken into custody at a gas station after police realized he was in a vehicle that had expired registration and that was not registered to him. "Hammer became very argumentative when questioned about the vehicle. He refused to exit the vehicle when the officer asked him to and continued to argue."
Hammer was released from jail after being booked and posting bail.
