Nipsey Hussle tells our sources … “hyper-sensitive LAPD officers” overreacted and used excessive force when stopping the rapper and his crew at a Trayvon Martin rally yesterday — and he insists he did NOTHING wrong.
We broke the story … Nipsey was handcuffed after cops believed he may have been brandishing a gun … but later let him go when they realized he was not in possession of a firearm.
Now, Hussle tells us … cops blamed the mix-up on officers who were monitoring the event in a police helicopter … and they believed they saw Nipsey with a gun.
Nipsey says the confusion may have stemmed from an incident with a random person who threw a bottle at Nipsey”s car. Nipsey says he and his crew got out of the car to say something to the bottle-thrower … then quickly got back into their car and drove away. Moments later, they were surrounded by cops.
Nipsey tells our sources … he”s especially upset at the way cops treated his brother (who is disabled) — “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 says cops held them on scene for 4 HOURS … before they eventually determined no one in Nipsey”s crew had a gun.
Despite being at the Trayvon Martin rally … Hussle doesn”t think the situation was a case of racial profiling — “I think it was the result of hyper sensitive LAPD officers overreacting once again.”
