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.”

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”



It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
