Tyler, the Creator was arrested last night in Hollywood, California after destroying sound equipment at the Roxy concert venue.

According to TMZ, the Odd Future ringleader performed at the space earlier in the evening, shouting at the sound engineer at the club. Around 11:30 p.m., he was arrested on suspicion of vandalism and was booked at a nearby station.

Police say that Tyler had “just destroyed an electric soundboard belonging to the venue. […] As [Tyler] was being escorted to a nearby radio car, the crowd exiting the venue became angry and rushed into the street, towards deputies.”

Cops shut down Sunset Blvd. for 30 minutes after the crowd gathered and soon dispersed.
