Police in Haiti are saying that Wyclef Jean was not hit by gunfire during a shooting that occurred over the weekend. Wyclef suffered an injury to his hand that officials are saying was caused by broken glass.
From the NY Daily News:
Jean said he was in a car with a driver in the Delmas section of the capital at the time. He doesn’t know who fired the shots, or whether they were directed at him, the 37-year-old Grammy winner said.
Cops down-played the violence, and say the New Jersey resident – a Haitian-American who hoped to compete in the Caribbean nation’s ongoing presidential race – suffered only a minor cut to his hand from glass in an apparent accident.
“We met with the doctor who saw him and he confirmed Wyclef was cut by glass,” Vanel Lacroix, police chief in Petionville where Jean is staying, told Reuters.
Are the cops trying to cover up something or is Wyclef trying to get some publicity?
