MC HAMMER had a run-in with police late last week, and ended up in a war of words via TWITTER over the incident.
HAMMER (real name STANLEY BURRELL), was arrested at the HACIENDA CROSSINGS shopping center on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21st on suspicion of obstructing an officer in the performance of their duties and resisting an officer. He "had expired registration on a vehicle that was not registered to him. He refused to give the officer any information on the owner. MC HAMMER became very argumentative and continued to refuse to answer any questions about the vehicle," according to a police statement.
Then on SATURDAY, HAMMER launched a string of tweets telling his side of the story. CNN reports, "HAMMER began his tweets SATURDAY with 'chubby elvis looking dude was tapping on my car window, I rolled down the window and he said 'Are you on parole or probation?' 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."
HAMMER was released on bail after being booked at SANTA RITA Jail. A court date is set for next month.
