Skrillex was detained by police in Hollywood last night (19th April), after a policeman deemed his music to be too loud.
The “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” producer was driving past a Pinkberry in his Tesla when cops pulled him over to deal with the noise issue. They asked for Skrill’s ID, but he came up empty-handed. That prompted the cops to order him out of his car and then slap on the cuffs.
After figuring out that it was the 29-year-old producer and that the car was his, the police released Skrillex.
The whole situation really turned into an endorsement for Elon Musk and his company, Tesla, because the producer had some great things to say about the car, despite him getting pulled over and cuffed:
.@elonmusk ur system in the tesla model x is just too 🔥🔥🔥🔥
