Kid Cudi was arrested on Friday in New York and charged with felony criminal mischief and possession of a controlled substance. According to mtv.com, authorities were called to respond to a disturbance involving the rapper and an unidentified woman.
A spokesman for the New York Police Department confirmed to MTV News that Kid Cudi was indeed arrested in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. The spokesman, however, didn’t speak about the controlled substance found on the rapper.
This isn’t the first time Kid Cudi has been arrested. Last year, cops in Los Angeles arrested Cudi after a magazine shoot. Residents had complained about looters in the area. Police, who pressured the rapper and his entourage to the ground in an effort to secure the premises, held Cudi at gunpoint.
The rapper was then released in a case of mistaken identity.
Cudi was still awaiting arraignment as of Saturday. Bail has also yet to be set. A request for comment made to the rapper’s management was not returned.
