- Shatta Wale has downplayed reports that he was arrested following a video of him in an altercation with a policeman
- Shatta Wale says he was not arrested but got angry after the policeman described him as a 'rascal'
Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has explained his recent altercation with a policeman which's video has gone viral in the last few days.
According to him, the altercation came about after the policeman described him as a rascal.
Shatta Wale was captured in a video hotly exchanging words with a policeman at East Legon.
In the video, the police officer is seen ordering the artiste and his friends to get back into their cars and follow him to the police station.
Shatta Wale, after a failed attempt to get the policeman to let him and his squad go, got angry, and started shouting at the officer for dealing with a public figure like him in that manner.
News that accompanied the viral video suggested Shatta Wale had been arrested.
But speaking on Peace FM's Entertainment Review on Saturday, Shatta Wale stated that contrary to the reports, he was not arrested.
Shatta Wale explained that the policeman stopped his G-Wagon vehicle which he had sent someone to go and wash so he went to the scene after being informed about it.
But in the ensuing discussion, the policeman referred to him as a rascal which got him angry and he decided to leave the car for the officer in order not to create a scene.
“It got to a point people were coming around, people don’t know the relationship I have with him so he actually used the word you these rascals and I said oh, uncle, you’re calling me rascal, that’s when I got pissed. I was like let’s leave the car keys with him, he can even keep the car and drive because I love him so much.
"I don’t want the word rascal, people were coming around and I didn’t want them to hear him call me a rascal and then the next thing you see and hear, my story will be all over the media. That Policeman is no person people should get worried about because he’s my man," he stated.
