Wyclef Jean ‘Appalled’ by Police Officers Over Handcuffing Incident
“I was instantly hand cuffed before being asked to identify myself and before being told why,” he wrote. “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 bahavior of the LAPD (sic).”
