Tyler, the Creator Arrested for Vandalism

Tyler, the Creator

Odd Future’s Christmas show didn’t end so merry and bright when frontman Tyler, the Creator was arrested on Thursday night for vandalism.

The 20-year-old rapper allegedly trashed some sound equipment while performing with his crew at The Roxy in West Hollywood, reports TMZ.

Staff at the venue called the police around 11:30 p.m. Tyler was handcuffed and taken into custody in front of his mother, who was visibly upset and reprimanded the cops.

In the fan-filmed footage posted online, Tyler is seen making his way to the soundboard before yelling at the audio engineer and tossing equipment in his direction.

His OFWGKTA affiliate Frank Ocean tweeted following the incident. “dem hoelice yo,” he wrote.

Tyler was previously arrested in May while promoting his solo album Goblin at a Los Angeles area high school.

    His actions confuse me :/
    How does his behavior allow him to be taken so seriously as an artist? Don’t get me wrong I am not bashing him by any means, I have loads of respect for him but he needs to watch out with the way he oftentimes presents himself. Too much is too much. It’s like he’s a kid throwing a temper tantrum…not cute.

    Tyler needs to be arrested. He needs to know that throwing equipment at people threatens their life and that has consequences. Grow the fuk up Tyler, maybe one day when you end up stuck in jail you’ll realize that what you are doing is dumb shit.

    This guys trash. Just because he thinks he’s something “fresh” in the industry for being something out of the ordinary doesn’t mean he can do sht like this in reality. Grow up and get out of your retarded mind-set.

    Tyler have an “I don’t give a f#ck attitude.” I admire it somewhat but he must learn to control it.

    The bitches at the ROXY turned Tyler’s mic off before the show was over because they thought fans were getting unruly. Tyler and the group told them to turn the mics back on and that’s when this went down. The biggest part of the show was never realized – It was CRAY.

    @aaron, Wow… there is by any means NO excuse for how immature this guy acts. And its only about a matter of time before people realize it.

    How disrespectful. These poor people give him a venue to perform at and he trashes it? Sounds like a prom after party for 17 year olds.. Shit son, grow up.

    How about your fans go into your home and break shit? I’m sure you wouldn’t like that would you? Arrogant biatch. #smh

    For real, I’m not quite sure giving him a record deal was a good idea. One day this ”creator” will kill a fan or two or three. Then people will realise he’s mentally ill. Just reading about his song put me off… What kind of black guy is he? Go hand out with marilyn manson.WE don’t need that sh*t. No we dont. OUT

    @International Chick, haha. “what kind of black guy is he”. that is the most racist thing you could say. what, just cause he’s black he can’t act outside the mold of a typical rapper. he played with a hardcore band call Tradh Talk and they wreck venues all the time. most of the members are compiled of black dudes, but that don’t mean they can’t play some good ol “nigger hating” rock n roll. stop being so ignorant, dumb ass.

    This post is old as crud but I don’t think any of you understand what is going on. I’ve been to tons of punk, hardcore, and metal shows. This stuff happens all the time. It’s like you guys have never been in a REAL mosh pit. The straight edge scene kids in Reno throw cinderblocks and traffic cones in the pit. I can’t tell you how many times a half stack of speakers has hit me in the head at a show. Cops never got called out. The venue owner didn’t realize what he was getting himself into. bottom line: he’s not doing anything new. He’s got that rock star mentality.
