(Newser) – Wyclef Jean was shot over the weekend in Haiti—or was he? The hip-hop star claimed he was getting out of a car in a city just outside the capital when he "heard blow, blow, blow" and looked down to see that a bullet had "grazed" his right hand. But police say the story is just that, a story, and that his injury was actually a minor one—from broken glass, not a bullet, the Daily Mail reports. Says the police chief, "We met with the doctor who saw him and he confirmed Wyclef was cut by glass."
