"I was coming from the gym when I made a wrong turn and there were cops ahead of me. I they signaled me to stop but I thought it was a Probox which was infront of me,"
"The police then followed me and blocked me, I got concerned thinking they were robbers. I stopped the car. They searched the car but found nothing. They started roughing me up wanting to handcuff me," he said, showing marks on his hands.
Timmy said the incident quickly escalated resorting to his vehicle being towed and him taken to police station where he was bombarded with at least 10 charges including resisting arrest and fighting police.
They called me a goon and threw me in a stinking cell. I started making a fuss and they took me to a different cell where at least I found some people we could chat with,"
"I think it was a case of mistaken identity because a Probox can't just emerge from the blues and start following someone,"he said.
The artist, who barely a month ago caused a stir online after he almost undressed a female fan on stage, left his fans speculating after a viral video which captured his arrest.
The rapper has always attracted controversy including a nasty incidence where he was entangled in a gun drama at an Eldoret airport barely a year ago.
