The rapper known as "Tyler, the Creator," has been arrested after authorities say he got rowdy after a show at the Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood.
Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Arthur Famble Jr. says the rapper was arrested Thursday night after he destroyed the Sunset Strip nightclub's electronic soundboard.
The 20-year-old, whose real name is Tyler Gregory Okonma, was booked for investigation of felony vandalism and released on $20,000 bail.
The sergeant says that as the rapper was being led to a squad car, the crowd leaving the Roxy became angry and additional deputies were called in to disperse the crowd.
No one was hurt.
Telephone numbers for Okonma and his record company couldn't be found. Okonma says in a Twitter message that he wasn't arrested.
