Rapper Nipsey Hussle was arrested on Friday (29Aug14) for allegedly obstructing police in Los Angeles as they investigated a probation violation.

Officers raided a clothes store in the city looking for a suspect who had allegedly breached probation rules, but Hussle got caught up in the incident.

Hussle, who was not the man cops were seeking, was arrested and charged with obstructing a police officer. He was released on Saturday (30Aug14) after posting $13,000 (£7,600) bail, according to Tmz.com.

A representative for the hip-hop star tells the website the arrest was "unjust and without cause".
