MC Hammer Says Charges In Recent Arrest Have Been Dropped
After being arrested last month in Dublin, CA and charged with obstruction of justice, MC Hammer is now saying he has been cleared of all charges. Yesterday, the rapper took to Twitter to announce his good news, typing, “Thank You to all my friends and supporters. All CHARGES DECLINED. Dropped. Have A great Weekend.”
As previously reported, Hammer, born, Stanley Burrell was initially cited for driving a vehicle with expired tags in the Hacienda Crossings shopping center. Authorities then claimed the “You Can’t Touch This” rapper became hostile upon further questioning by officers. He was arrested and later booked and released from the Santa Rita Jail.
The Funky Headhunter, however claimed the entire incident was racially charged. Hammer contended the officer immediately questioned whether he was “on parole or probation” upon approaching the vehicle. “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 later Tweeted about the incident. But apparently, now it’s aaaall good. Hammer even ended his tweet with the hashtag, #NoBeef.
