Skrillex was pulled over and handcuffed by the LAPD early Thursday morning (April 20).

A passerby recorded a video of the Canadian EDM star being handcuffed and detained in the back of a police car after being pulled over in Hollywood for reportedly blasting music too loud in his car. The video clip was shared on Twitter where Skrillex himself—née Sonny Moore—retweeted it, commenting, “Leave it to me to play my music ‘too loud’…These new demos are [fire] tho.”

In a follow up tweet, Moore clarified that while he was initially pulled over for playing his music too loud in his Tesla Model X vehicle, the reason he was handcuffed is because he didn’t have identification on him.
