Controversy: Haitian Police Said Wyclef Jean Cut Hand On Glass
Law enforcement officials in Haiti dismiss Wyclef Jean claims of being shot in the hand. Instead, police representatives said the former Fugee was cut by a glass in the hand.
“We met with the doctor who saw him and he confirmed Wyclef was cut by glass,” Vanel Lacroix, police chief in Petionville, told the Daily Mail.
As previously reported, Wyclef Jean was allegedly shot in the hand on Saturday night (Mar 19), on the eve of the Presidential election.
According to Wyclef, he was exiting a vehicle to make a phone call when an unidentified assailant shot him in the hand around 11 p.m. Saturday.
“The way I can explain it is that the bullet grazed me in my right hand. I heard blow, blow, blow and I just looked at my hand.”
Wyclef is yet to respond to the new development
