MC Hammer was arrested in Northern California on Thursday for allegedly obstructing an officer, CNN reports.
The rapper made the arrest known on Saturday with a series of tweets suggesting that he was a victim of racial profiling.
Hammer (who was born Stanley Kirk Burrell) was reportedly sitting in a car outside a shopping center in Dublin, a city east of Oakland, when he was approached by a police officer. ”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 …. 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.”
According to the Dublin Police, Hammer was in a vehicle with expired registration, and he was not the registered owner. “After asking Hammer who the registered owner was he became very argumentative and refused to answer the officer’s questions,” police spokesman Herb Walters told CNN. Hammer was arrested on suspicion of resisting an officer and obstructing an officer in the performance of his duties; he was booked and released on bail from Santa Rita Jail, with a court date set for next month.
Hammer concluded his tweeted account of the incident by describing it as a “teachable moment” and an “eye opener.” “I will now answer his question,” he wrote. “contrary to his personal beliefs, all people of color are not on parole or probation fat boy!!!”
Hammer tell you are “2 Legit 2 quit”!
Our boy Eben Gregory put us up on a little gossip. From the sounds of it Frank has been getting his freak on in the New Year.
Reports Sandra Rose:
Celebrity blogger Yazmar reports that Odd Future singer Frank Ocean was pulled over and arrested for “driving suspiciously.” Reportedly, Ocean and his male friend were “doing a little Teddy Pendergrass sex” act in the front seat in the moving vehicle, which is a criminal offense in many states. Frank tweeted a photo from the back seat of the patrol car.
We know that Frank’s male companion was not his ex-boyfriend, model Willy Cartier, because Willy spent the holidays tweeting from his native Paris, France.

Chad Johnson’s wife Evelyn Lozada had a bleeding gash on her forehead when she ran to her neighbor for help this weekend … this is according to the neighbor who begged the 911 dispatcher to keep the whole situation on the low. As we previously reported, Evelyn fled to her neighbor’s house following a domestic dispute with Chad Saturday night, during which the NFL star allegedly head-butted her in the forehead.
The neighbor called 911 — telling the dispatcher, Chad “hit her on the head … She has a nice cut on the forehead that I believe is going to need stitches.”
The neighbor wasn’t just worried about Evelyn’s cut, he was also freaking out about an inevitable media firestorm surrounding the domestic dispute … telling the dispatcher, Chad is a “very high-profile person and we’d like to keep this as quiet as possible.” He pleaded, “We don’t need the news here.”
Looks like his wish wasn’t granted.
According to Fif, Money May is experiencing significant hardships at the start of his three-month bid.
While Fiddy did not get into many details, he made it clear Mayweather is not living the glamorous life behind bars.
The G-Unit CEO, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, also gave an update on his friend Floyd Mayweather, who is currently serving a three-month sentence for domestic battery of an ex-girlfriend in front of their two children. “He’s not doing good right now,” said 50. “He only been out seven hours since he been in there. They doin’ everything to make this difficult.” Right before Mayweather began his sentence last month, Fif told MTV News that the boxer has a deep connection with music. “Floyd has a huge passion for music that people don’t know about,” 50 explained. “It’s a big part of what makes him comfortable and takes his mind off of how hard he has to work to stay being the #1 fighter in the world.”
This week, Mayweather lost a bout to have his jail sentenced reduced to house arrest.
Mayweather’s legal team told the court this week that his personal physician, Dr. Robert Voy, visited the jail Friday and determined the fighter had lost muscle tone. Voy estimated Mayweather was consuming fewer than 800 calories a day instead of his usual 3,000 or 4,000 calories. Mayweather also wasn’t drinking enough because he wasn’t allowed bottled water and doesn’t enjoy tap water.
Look on the bright side Floyd. You got a gang of money waiting for you when you get home, and you saved money on your insurance.
Floyd Mayweather has finally checked in to a Las Vegas jail to serve his 90 day sentence stemming from a 2010 domestic violence incident where he pleaded guilty to charges against the mother of his kids. Looks like he’ll have to wait until August (when he’s expected to be released) to start spending the reported $32 million he recently made in his fight against Miguel Cotto.
Check out the news report above where they talk about him turning himself in and getting a pedicure shortly before. Classic money Mayweather!
