Tauranga musician Tiki Taane could face charges after allegedly singing “f*** the police” in a night club in Palmerston North.
The chart topping artist was performing a show at Mr Cue club near The Square in Palmerston North when he allegedly began chanting “f*** the police” while officers carried out a routine inspection of the club.
Tiki Taane was arrested after his performance at Illuminati in April last year.
Tiki appeared in the Tauranga District Court after a similar incident in a Tauranga club in April last year.
He was charged with acting in a disorderly manner likely to incite violence after singing the NWA song F*** The Police at a performance at Illuminati Club on Harrington Street.
The charge was later dropped after mediation between the musician and Tauranga Police.
During a performance in Palmerston North, police turned up to do a routine inspection when Tiki allegedly starting chanting ‘f*** the police’.
Acting Palmerston North Inspector Brett Calkin says police are considering their options in relation to charges for the incident.
In a story on Stuff.co.nz Inspector Calkin says “it’s extremely disappointing that police officers are going into licensed premises and doing their job and they are being taunted by well-known individuals, such as Tiki Taane.”
SunLive attempted to contact Tiki but were told by his management he would not be speaking to media until police decide whether or not charges will be laid.
