Skrillex detained by police in Hollywood

Turns out his Tesla Model X system is just too fire...

Skrillex was detained by police in Hollywood last night (19th April), after a policeman reportedly deemed his music to be too loud as he drove through Los Angeles.

Colby Lila Kline shared a video of the incident on Twitter, which shows Skrillex – real name Sonny Moore – being handcuffed and put in the back of a police car.

Skrillex later confirmed that he hadn’t been arrested, and was free to go and DJ at a party later the same night.

Skrillex also joined Anna Lunoe on stage during her Coachella set on Sunday (16th April), congratulating the singer/producer/OWSLA label star on her pregnancy.
