Tiki Taane Arrested

Tiki Taane, one-time singer with Salmonella Dub, was arrested during a show at the Illuminati Bar in Tauranga, New Zealand, after reportedly singing ’80s rap anthem “Fuck Tha Police” while police were inspecting the club.

The high-profile performer was reportedly arrested for disorderly behavior.

The Christchurch-based musician released a statement saying the NWA song was a favorite of his and that he did not mean to cause offence.

“I feel it is unfortunate that one particular police officer became upset with the NWA lyrics I sang that night,” he said.
He wrote on his website that “Freedom of speech is a human right.”
