Mugshot: Rapper MC Hammer arrested!

Rapper MC Hammer was arrested at a Dublin, California, shopping mall last Thursday on suspicion of resisting an officer and obstructing an officer in the performance of his duties.

Police said Hammer was in a vehicle with expired registration and he was not the registered owner.

"After asking Hammer who the registered owner was he became very argumentative and refused to answer the officer's questions," police spokesman Herb Walters wrote Saturday in an e-mail to CNN.

The rapper, born Stanley Kirk Burrell, used Twitter Saturday to tell his side of the story.

Apparently referring to the arresting officer, Hammer said, 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?'"

In another tweet, Hammer said, “While I as handing him my ID he reached in my car and tried to pull me out of the car but forgot he was on a steady donut diet. It was comical to me until he pulled out his guns, blew his whistle and yelled for help (MallCop) !!! But make no mistake he's dangerous."
