Professor Green was arrested earlier this week on suspicion of lying to police.

The 'Read All About It' rapper was first taken into custody on November 3 on drink driving charges after phoning police to report that he had been mugged outside his London home. He was arrested again last Monday (November 25) on suspicion to pervert the course of justice and was later bailed pending further investigation.

A spokesman from the Metropolitan Police told Sky News: "A 29-year-old man was arrested on Monday, November 25, on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice after reporting for bail at a southeast London police station. He has been bailed to a date in January pending further enquiries."

At the time of the initial incident, it was reported 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.

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.
