MC Hammer Arrested For Obstruction And Resisting Officer

Another day, another arrest…and this time it’s your boy Stanley Kirk Burrell!

Via Today:

Beloved rapper and entertainer MC Hammer was arrested in Dublin, Calif. on Saturday (Feb. 23) for obstructing and resisting a police officer, but claimed via Twitter that he was a victim of racial profiling. Shortly after his release from the Santa Rita Jail, the “U Can’t Touch This” rapper, 50, tweeted his take on the incident.

“Chubby elvis looking dude was tapping on my car window, I rolled down the window and he said ‘Are you on parole or probation?'” said the performer and preacher (real name: Stanley Kirk Burrell). “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,” he continued.

According to TMZ, the Dublin Police Department has yet to release a statement about the arrest. 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 cited for obstruction.” Added Hammer, who is also a tech entrepreneur: “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 !!!”
