Grammy-winning musician Wyclef Jean says he was unfairly detained by authorities in Los Angeles County after being mistaken for a robbery suspect.
Jean posted a video Tuesday on Twitter showing himself in handcuffs leaned over a patrol car.
Jean said he was stopped by Los Angeles police, but he was actually detained by sheriff's deputies in neighboring West Hollywood.
The former Fugees star said he tried to explain that he wasn't the suspect but was ignored and cuffed.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Nicole Nishida says Jean's clothing and vehicle matched the description of a suspect in an armed robbery.
