Hughley went to Twitter this week to make a point about Jean’s past #AllLivesMatter stance.
This week, the Los Angeles Police Department issued a statement on Clef’s accidental arrest.
The sheriff’s department said in a statement it was “apologetic for any inconvenience” after detaining Jean for six minutes, and cleared him of any connection with the initial crime. Deputies “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 department said, adding, “We are grateful we were able to apprehend the robbery suspects and that no one was seriously injured.” (NBC News)
Jean also addressed the headline-generating incident.
The music veteran made sure to release footage of his LAPD run-in.
I was asked by the police to Put my hands up. Then I was told do not move. I was instantly hand cuffed before being asked to identify myself and before being told why. 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.
