Hammer, whose real name is Stanley Kirk Burrell, was taken in by police following an incident at a shopping centre in Dublin, he shared on Twitter.

The artist was brought to Santa Rita Jail and later released after failing to cooperate with an officer.

After his release, Hammer took to Twitter, telling his side of the story and accusing authorities of racial profiling.

He wrote: "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 doughnut diet."

He continued: "I will now answer his question, contrary to his personal beliefs, all people of colour are not on parole or probation fat boy!!!"

The Dublin Police Department have not yet released a statement over the performer's arrest.
