LAPD apologise to Wyclef Jean over mistaken identity detainment for 'violent crime'

Singer Wyclef Jean has received an apology from the Los Angeles Police Department after he was wrongfully detained.

The Fugees star was detained by authorities in the early hours of 21 March in a case of mistaken identity. While outside a Los Angeles recording studio, Jean, 47, was handcuffed and detained for six minutes by police who mistook the musician for a suspect in a robbery and assault which occurred nearby.

After Jean criticised the LAPD and posted footage of the incident on social media, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department have issued a statement explaining how the mix-up happened. In a lengthy Facebook statement, the department said: "It is unfortunate that Mr. Jean was detained for six minutes during this investigation, as he had no involvement whatsoever in this violent crime.

"However, Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriffs are frequently required to make lawful detentions, under the strict parameters provided by law, in the interest of catching often dangerous and armed suspects in our communities and keeping the public safe. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is apologetic for any inconvenience this process caused Mr Jean."
