NEW YORK — A rapper and reality television star is lashing out at police who say he's wanted for roughing up his ex-girlfriend and stealing her cellphone.

Joe Budden directed his ire at the New York Police Department via Twitter on Saturday after it sent out his picture and asked the public for help tracking him down.

In one expletive-punctuated tweet, the 33-year-old city native says he's going to sue. In another, he tells the NYPD's account to alert the "Man hunt" that he'll be at an Astoria strip club Saturday night.

Police say the "Love & Hip Hop" star snatched the phone and twisted his ex-girlfriend's arm during a dispute in his car early Monday in Manhattan.

Budden didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment. His latest album is "All Love Lost."
