In an interesting turn of pre-Coachella events, Bad Man Skrillex was handcuffed by Los Angeles authorities last night.

Sonny Moore was briefly detained by police on the night of April 19th for apparently “playing his music too loud.” A video surfaced of the DJ/producer getting cuffed and put into the back of a police car, which quickly spread like wildfire thanks to the power of the Internet.

Shortly after, Skrillex took to Twitter to lay any rumors to rest by clarifying that he wasn’t actually arrested. He added, “Leave it to me to play my music ‘too loud'” and tagged Tesla C.E.O. Elon Musk.

Shout out to Sonny for staying calm, cool, and collected throughout the entire situation. Don’t let the haters (or the cops) get you down!
