The LAPD may not have a handcuff left to spare by the time Wyclef Jean is finished with them.
Why he’s vowed to sue them?
A series of unfortunate events below…
Jean was minding his own business in the company of his manager and another woman in West Hollywood at 1.30 am when he received the shock of his life!
He was mistaken for another man.
I 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 and before being told why. 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. I am sure no father wants his sons or daughters to see him in Handcuffs especially if he is innocent. As some one who has law enforcers in my family, I was appalled by the behaviour of the LAPD. I am going to sue the LAPD.
Another man, who police also believed was involved with the crime they were trying to solve, was arrested around the same time.
