Desiigner Meet and Greet in Boston Shut Down by Police
Desiigner, the personification of unrestrained turn up, caused a bit too much of a stir at a Boston area mall, prompting local police to shut down a meet greet with the rapper and Boston Celtic Jaylen Brown. Six juveniles were arrested at CambridgeSide Galleria, The Cambridge Chronicle reports, more than 1,000 people showing up for the event, a large group knocking down a barrier and throwing glass, bricks and other objects at police trying to disperse the crowd.
The whole scene was documented from within on Twitter, with videos and reports included below. "Select attendees were treated after being exposed to OC spray, which was used by police to manage and disperse the crowd inside the mall after the crowds grew more aggressive," Jeremy Warnick, Director of Communications & Media Relations for the Cambridge Police Department told XXL in a statement. "Those arrested face charges, including trespassing, disorderly conduct, and disturbing the peace. The juveniles were four males and two females."
Desiigner has yet to issue a statement on the matter, though Jaylen Brown, who is in his rookie season with the Celtics tweeted that he'd try to reschedule the event soon, apologizing for being unable to make it. Witness some of the chaos as captured below, with additional details available via The Cambridge Chronicle. We will update this story as news develops and hope that all who attended were able to evacuate safely.
