Kid 'n Play Christopher Reid  jail

Christopher Reid -- the "Kid" in '80s hip-hop duo Kid 'n Play -- was released from jail Wednesday morning after his Tuesday arrest.

Reid, 47, was arrested at his home for missing court dates tied to his July 2010 DUI arrest.

But he was all smiles when leaving jail, saying that his arrest was "clerical" and "totally" a misunderstanding (watch our video below). His last words:

    "I love L.A. Peace to the Po-Po."

There had been a warrant out for his arrest since August 2. Bail was set at $26,000. When arrested in 2010, Reid's blood alcohol level was almost double the legal limit. He was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to seek counseling.
