Rising hip-hop star Kid Cudi was arrested in New York City on Friday for felony criminal mischief and possession of a controlled substance, reports TMZ.com.
Police were reportedly called to Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood after the 26-year-old Cleveland native smashed a 24-year-old womans cell phone, in addition to breaking her apartment door off of its hinges.
Upon arrival, according to The Boombox, police also discovered a glass bottle of a substance that is rumored to be liquid cocaine.
The news comes just hours before Kid Cudi is due to perform at this year’s Bonnaroo Music Festival. MTV reports the rapper has yet to be arraigned, but Weirdoe Clothing suggests he may have already been bailed out and ready to perform at his scheduled 2am EST Saturday start time. Update: Cudi did manage to perform his Bonnaroo set. After taking the stage, he said, “I really wanted to be here tonight.”
More details as they become available.
