Now when someone like MC Hammer is arrested, you know something in the milk might not be clean.

The former rapper turned businessman was arrested Friday night in Dublin, CA for obstruction an officer, according to CNN.

He was taken to the Santa Rita jail where he was booked and release for not only obstruction but also for resisting an officer. The Dublin police department says that Hammer was driving with an expired registration in a vehicle where he wasn’t the registered owner.

However, since social media is the perfect outlet for celebrities to let people know what’s going on with them, Hammer took to Twitter to address the situation. He says he was racially profiled and he is not pleased:


A department spokesman said when the officer asked Hammer questions, he became argumentative and refused to answer questions.

Now, we don’t know the full truth is but can anyone remember the last time MC Hammer got into legal trouble, besides the bankruptcy situation from years ago?  People do have mental lapses and it often results in bad situations but this sounds a littlr weird.

Hammer was cited and will have to appear in court next month; police will then decide whether or not they’ll file charges against him.
