Wyclef Jean was "scared for his life" after he was handcuffed by gun-wielding officers in a case of mistaken identity.

The 47-year-old singer was pulled over by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies investigating an armed robbery on Tuesday (21.03.17) and is relieved he never lashed out during his ordeal.

He said: "I have family on both sides of the lens but I got a chance to see what happens with a citizen versus a police firsthand.

"I have to tell you, I was scared for my life to the point where I could have acted different and if I had, something different could have happened."
