MC Hammer was arrested and booked into a Dublin jail Thursday for allegedly obstructing a police officer at the Hacienda Crossing Shopping Center, KTVU reports. The platinum selling rapper claims he was the victim of racial profiling.

Hammer, who currently heads a MMA athlete management company, tweeted about the incident, saying that it started when a “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,” tweeted Hammer. “It was comical to me until he pulled out his guns, blew his whistle and yelled for help (MallCop).”

Hammer was booked into Santa Rita Jail that night and released after being cited, according to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.
