The singer, who was performing at Slim's in San Francisco as part of his US tour, Tweeted about the experience, and said he was almost shot in the face.

In a series of Twitter postings earlier today (June 9), Wolf wrote, "Was arrested by san fran police for spitting in a bouncer's face in protection of myself. Was almost shot in the face by a policeman. WTF? was told by the policeman "take your shitty ass music out of this city and if you ever step off that tour bus you will be *****"

"Feeling very thelma and louise right now.. must sleep... not allowed off the bus or i will be shot by a policeman. this country is insane!!! btw. apparently my spit DEFINITELY contains hiv, swine flu and hepatitis that is why my spit is a deadly weapon according to police here!"

Wolf is scheduled to continue his tour with a show at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles tonight.
