Chanel West Coast: I Witnessed “Police Brutality” & Here Are The Bruises To Prove It
Chanel West Coast was arrested on Tuesday night for battery and according to the rapper, her police encounter lead to several bruises on her arms.
Just a few hours after being released from custody, the Ridiculousness star took to Twitter to talk about the incident that took place at 1OAK nightclub in Hollywood.
“I was assaulted by police last night for no reason and have bruises all over my arms” she wrote in a series of tweets.
The Los Angeles native went on to compare her situation to other mainstream police brutality stories in our country.
“Police have gotten out of f*cking hand in this country!!! This sh*t ain’t a race issue it’s a cop issue!!! Time to put an end to this!!”
She continued, “I was violently held by 2 huge men cops last night for nothing and have bruises all over my arms. Can someone please explain why a tiny 5’3 98lb woman needs 2 men officers to hold her down and bruise her arms?????”
“Last night I witnessed police brutality first hand and I’m completely outraged. There are real criminals out there and I’m getting arrested. LMAO I literally did nothing and had 2 cops violently handcuff me and hold me down here are the bruises.”
The Sheriffs Department tells HipHollywood that Chanel was taken into custody after security at the venue called in a private persons arrest. It is still unclear what occurred inside the club.
