MC Hammer took to Twitter to share his side of story after he was arrested late Thursday, February 21 for allegedly resisting an officer in a shopping center in Dublin, California. Not only did the rapper insist that he did nothing wrong but he also slammed the cop for racial profiling.

He claimed it began when an officer whom he described as a "chubby elvis looking dude" was tapping on his car window and asked "Are you on parole or probation?" He went on, "While I was handing him my ID he reached in my car and tried to pull me out the car but forgot he was on a steady donut diet."

"It was comical to me until he pulled out his guns, blew his whistle and yelled for help (MallCop) !!! But make no mistake he's dangerous. Only thing more dangerous than a scared man with a gun, is a scared man with an agenda, a gun and a badge. I was citied for obstruction smh," he added.

The "U Can't Touch This" hitmaker continued, "You have to know me to understand I was laughing when he was grunting and pulling on me .. I had just left the weight room .. I will now answer his question, contrary to his personal beliefs, all people of color are not on parole or probation fat boy !!!"

He concluded, "Instead of being bitter, I'm taking the opportunity to make this a 'teachable moment' and 'eye opener' for my many friends & colleagues."

He has been released from Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, CA.

I wasn't there and I have NO idea if M.C. Hammer has priors, but I will say this: If an Officer stopped me and asked me if I was on parole or anything of that nature, I would keep the window closed and call an attorney! There are some HORRIBLE officers out there, but it appears ESPECIALLY in CALIFORNIA. So much for "WE THE PEOPLE..." We are living in a TYRANNIC WORLD since 9-11. I'm beginning to think it may have been an inside job, to allow for an ulterior motive. Look at the MILITARIZATION of the Police! Look at the BLATANT stomping of basic human rights and the every day MURDERS and BEATINGS of INNOCENT Citizens. I've retired to CANADA. I'm ASHAMED of former fellow LEO that stand by and do nothing. God Bless Chris Dorner. Let it be known you were a good person and 'cracked' under the pressure! WAKE UP AMERICA! ARE YOU "SHEEPLE"???

"I will now answer his question, contrary to his personal beliefs, all people of color are not on parole or probation fat boy !!!" Not "all", just FAR TOO MANY. So if this is a teachable moment, then teach in the right direction. There is a reason you're profiled, and that reason is not the police.
