Professor Green was arrested on drink driving charges after phoning police to report the fact he was mugged outside his house.

BBC News reports that the rapper, who released his latest album 'At Your Inconvenience' in 2011, was taken into custody on suspicion of drink driving after calling the authorities to report that his Rolex had been taken from him during the early hours of Sunday (November 3). When the authorities arrived, they reportedly discovered that his Mercedes had been involved in a crash. He was bailed and must report back to the station later this month.

Scotland Yard said: "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."

Earlier this year Professor Green was hospitalised after being crushed between two cars (May 24). The 'Read All About It' rapper was picking up a hire car to travel to play at a student ball when he was accidentally sandwiched between a ML63 and an SLS AMG.

The rapper, who recently married Made In Chelsea reality TV star Millie Mackintosh, blamed the accident he had involving the cars on setting his schedule back to the extent that he had to postpone a planned tour of the UK in September.
