British rapper Professor Green was arrested on suspicion of drink driving on Sunday (03Nov13) after he called police to report a robbery.

The Read All About It hitmaker contacted cops after his Rolex watch was stolen from his wrist outside his London home.

However, the 29-year-old rapper, real name Stephen Manderson, became the target of the police investigation himself after officers arrived at the scene and realised his car had been involved in a crash with a van.

A statement from Scotland Yard reads, "The suspected driver of the car, a 29-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and taken into custody at a South London police station.

"There were no reports of any injured parties. Inquiries into the robbery and the collision are ongoing."

According to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, the star was taken to a local police station and later released on bail. He is due to return for further questioning later this month (Nov13).
