Nipsey Hussle Says LAPD Used Excessive Force During Handcuff Incident

UPDATE: Nipsey Hussle says the Los Angeles Police Department was forceful with his disabled brother.

Former Epic Records artist Nipsey Hussle was reportedly arrested yesterday (July 16), according to DailyNews.com. The Los Angeles, California rapper allegedly was cuffed by police for brandishing a pistol during a George Zimmerman protest in the city.

These reports greatly conflict with those of TMZ.com, who with video footage of the rapper in handcuffs, say that he was searched by police, and then let go when no weapon was found.

The Daily News report claims when police apprehended the 27-year-old, they discovered that Nipsey had two outstanding warrants. The reports did not specify what the warrants were for, but did say that police followed the rapper to his car, which was subsequently impounded.

A tweet from Nipsey this morning is believed to be a reaction to the incident and its reporting. The tweet also indicates that Hussle is no longer detained. Two years ago, Hussle and an associate were involved in shooting incident with the Los Angeles Police Department, which he is presumably referring to as "LAPDK" in his tweet.

Last month, Nipsey released Raw with rapper Blanco.

UPDATE: TMZ.com has published a second report on Nipsey Hussle's incident with police yesterday (July 16). Claiming that the onetime major label rapper was not arrested, Nip told the celebrity site "hyper-sensitive LAPD officers" approached him after a bottle was thrown at his Mercedes Benz coupe.

After Hussle and his brother exited the car to confront the vandals, members of the Los Angeles Police Department allegedly handcuffed the rapper and searched his car. According to Nip, his handicapped brother was mistreated by officials. "They pushed his face on the concrete. They dropped a knee in his spine then twisted his arm and cuffed him while he was not resisting."

Nipsey did not address initial reports that he had multiple warrants for his arrest.
