Former East 17 singer Brian Harvey has published a bizarre video appearing to show the moment he was arrested last month.
In the footage the 44-year-old complains about the pain that his handcuffs are causing him as officers detain him outside his north London home.
The video was posted on YouTube last night but appeared to show his arrest on suspicion of sending malicious communications last month.
The singer was wearing similar clothing on that occasion and Scotland Yard said they had no reports of any further incident at his address last night.

In the video, entitled ‘Me Arrested’, he talks to a friend who is asked to ‘take a step back’ by one of the Met Police officers on the scene in north London.
He tells his friend he has been arrested for ‘malicious communications’ but says he does not know what he has done.
‘These cuffs man, they’re tight,’ he says, even as officers insist they have loosened the restraints for him.
He says the handcuffs are ‘cutting on the bone’ and tells a female officer that they are no more comfortable despite her adjustments.

Officers are heard completing formalities of the arrest as Harvey’s friend tries to get a number to contact him later.
Harvey’s arrest came after a troubling livestream video he posted, in which he described his financial troubles and asked for a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May.
It sparked concern for his welfare and police attended the scene at his house in Walthamstow.
Following a physical examination by a doctor where he was deemed fit, Harvey, was taken into police custody.
He was subsequently released under investigation.
