Everyone knows Skrillex’s music is loud and banging, but that was lost on at least one Los Angeles police officer.
The EDM producer was pulled over and detained by police in Hollywood for allegedly playing music too loud from his Tesla Model X car.
Funnily enough, it may have been the artist’s own music that got him into trouble. “Leave it to me to play my music “too loud”… these new demos are [fire] though,” he tweeted to Tesla, Inc. founder Elon Musk.
He also informed Musk that the vehicle’s sound system is pretty banging!
Skrillex, 29, revealed to a fan on Twitter that he was en route to DJ at a friend’s house party. He also confirmed he was not arrested, only handcuffed.
The Justin Bieber-collaborator recently rejoined his old emo band, From First To Last, and performed their new song “Make War” live. It marked Skrillex’s first performance with the group in over a decade.
