Wyclef Jean is using social media to blast the Los Angeles law enforcement for partaking in another case of mistaken identity.
Jean was handcuffed on Monday night after being mistaken for a man who had just robbed a gas station. The artist recalled the entire incident on Twitter, suggesting that he was treated like an absolute criminal by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.
“LAPD another case of mistaken identity. Black man with red bandana robbed a gas station as I was in the studio working but im in handcuffs,” he wrote. The artist also included a video of himself in custody.
In the visual recorded from someone’s cell phone, a calm Wyclef reveals while being handcuffed that police removed the Haitian bandana from his head.

WJ continued, “Why am I in Handcuffs!!!!!????? This is what I said to the LAPD after they put me in Handcuffs?”
The Haitian singer explained that he “was asked by the police to Put my hands up. Then I was told do not move. I was instantly hand cuffed before being asked to identify myself.”
Per the 47-year-old, he wasn’t even “told why I was being cuffed. In the process I said my name and told them they have wrong person.”
“They proceeded to ignore me and I was treated like a criminal until other police showed up and pointed out they had wrong person,” he wrote.
Wyclef then pointed out that he’s “sure no father wants his sons or daughters to see him in Handcuffs especially if he is innocent.”
The Twitter tirade concluded with this message to law enforcement: “As some one who has law enforcers in my family, I was appalled by this behavior of the LAPD.”
Just one day being cuffed by police, the artist was in the studio with none other than Grammy Award-winning producer, Dianne Warren.
Cocktails & Coins! Inside Aisha Tyler’s Wild Life After Divorce & Departure From ‘The Talk’
Aisha Tyler went through a few MAJOR life changes over the past two years and now, the actress is back on top living life to the fullest.
In 2016, Tyler’s college love and husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, filed for divorce from the actress. As if that weren’t an emotional challenge to overcome, Tyler was then ordered to pay Tietjens $31,250 a month in spousal support for the next four years, plus a lump sum of $500k.
Following the emotional split, Tyler’s career then took a big turn when she walked away from CBS’s The Talk. Just eight months ago, the actress left the show to pursue other passions. “I also have three other series (Criminal Minds, hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway? and voicing a character on Archer),” the actress said during the big announcement. “People always go, ‘How do you do all that?’ And I don’t always have an answer.”
While it might sound like Tyler’s woes and 360 of a life might seem completely damaging, it all turned for the better. “The unknown can be very compelling and can be interesting. Instead of thinking about it as change, think about it as dynamism,” she told HipHollywood during the screening of Dwyane Wade’s, Shot in the Dark.
She explained, “You can’t stay the same, your life can’t stay the same. Staying the same is staying in place and staying in place is dying slowly. For me, I always reminded myself I’m not always going to feel this way, it’s not always going to be this tuff.”
“You cannot get through this experience on this planet without a little bit of pain and you need to know that and see that it’s temporary,” Aisha said. “My life is so interesting now and it wouldn’t have been without going through the stuff that I’ve been through. It’s been good for me; all this change.”
The actress is not only the star of some major network shows, but she also is about to launch her new cocktail line, Courage and Stone. “It’s been a really really exciting process,” she told us. “It really came out of my love of cocktails, my love of going to great bars and then going home and being like ‘I don’t know how to do all this.'”
Tyler then admitted that she was a whiskey girl at heart and that when she left the Talk “Julie Chen put me in a whiskey of the month club. She she’s doubled my collection in the last couple of months.”
Set to releae late spring early summer 2018.
