Wyclef Jean took to Twitter early Tuesday morning to blast Los Angeles law enforcement for mistakingly identifying him for a man who had just robbed a gas station.

According to the Haitian singer, he was stopped in West Hollywood and “instantly hand cuffed before being asked to identify myself and before being told why.” According to the 47-year-old, he was treated like an absolute criminal.

HipHollywood spoke directly with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department who told their side of the story.

Per the public information officer, an armed robbery occurred in the area Wyclef was in and the victims of the crime gave officials a suspect and vehicle description.

We are told that upon making contact, deputies realized that not only did Jean’s car match the description, but he also matched the suspect, all the way down to the style bandana worn by the artist.

Police made the detention and later determined he was not the suspect.

Clef, who was wearing a Haitian bandana, was told he is more than welcome to call the station to discuss what had occurred, but instead, he took to Twitter.

We are told that Jean was detained for less than ten minutes. But ten minutes was enough to berate officials for another case of mistaken identity.

The actual suspect was found shortly after just 4 blocks away from Wyclef’s initial point of detention.

50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”

Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
