Tyler, the Creator – frontman for the provocative hip-hop group Odd Future – was arrested last night for bad behavior during a set at the Roxy club in Los Angeles. The 20-year-old rapper (born Tyler Okonma) was detained after trashing some of the venue's sound equipment and allegedly attacking the club's sound engineer. 

During the chaotic incident, police reportedly used beanbag ammunition to disperse the crowd on the sidewalk outside the Sunset Boulevard club. Fans tweeting news of the scuffle reported that Tyler's mother wailed "That's my baby!" as the rapper was handcuffed.
