The 30-year-old rapper, real name Stephen Manderson, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and later rearrested for allegedly perverting the course of justice in November.
According to the police, he contacted them claiming that his Rolex had been stolen in a robbery, at around 2.40am on November 3.
