Even celebrities aren’t immune to “Driving While Black.” MC Hammer took to his Twitter page to give his side of the story following his arrest in Dublin, CA Thursday evening. Hammer was arrested at the Hacienda Crossings Shopping Center for allegedly resisting an officer. In an email sent to ABC 7, Sargeant Herb Walters states that Hammer was stopped outside in the parking lot on suspicion of obstructing an officer and resisting arrest.
In Hammer’s tweets, the rapper says he was arrested without cause. In one tweet, Hammer wrote that the officer tapped on his window and asked “Are you on parole or probation?”
Hammer’s fans were sympathetic to his plight and tweeted their support. Amazingly, Hammer isn’t bitter and shared: ” I’m taking the opportunity to make this a teachable moment and eye opener for my many friends and colleagues.”
Instead of being bitter, I’m taking the opportunity to make this a “teachable moment” and “eye opener” for my many friends & colleagues.—
