A rap star has been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
Hackney-born Professor Green, real name Stephen Manderson, 30, was detained on suspicion of lying to the police on November 25.
Police confirmed that Green had reported the theft of his Rolex on Tyrwhitt Road in Lewisham at around 2.40am on November 3.
When police arrived on the scene they found his Mercedes car crashed into a van and Green was subsequently arrested on suspicion of drink driving. No injuries were sustained and he was held overnight in the cells before being bailed.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “He has been bailed until a date in January pending further enquiries”.
The arrest on Monday came two days before the rapper’s 30th birthday, which he celebrated with his new wife, Millie Mackintosh, reality television star of Made in Chelsea.
