Christopher "Kid" Reid
was released from jail moments ago -- and according to the rapper, he's the victim of messy paperwork at the LAPD, telling TMZ ... while sporting a big grin ... his arrest today was merely a huge "clerical error."

But despite the alleged mix-up, Kid had no hard feelings on his way out of jail -- telling us, "I love L.A. Peace to the Po-Po."
