Riot Breaks Out During DMX Show at Indiana University

A small riot broke out when a DMX performance at the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity house on the Indiana University campus was cut short on Wednesday night (April 9). According to the Indiana Daily Student, the show was originally scheduled to begin at 8:30 and run for just an hour. But when X arrived late and didn’t take the stage until 9:30, campus police moved in to shut the gathering down. When police removed the rapper from the stage, the crowd became agitated and started to yell profanities at the officers. Additional campus police were called and were eventually joined by nearby Bloomington Police and State officers. At some point, the entire front row of the audience was maced. According to junior Lauren Smith, X had alcohol on stage with him and promised to share it with the students. “All of sudden, cops came on the stage so I thought he might be getting in trouble for alcohol,” Smith told the Daily Student. The maced students ran out onto nearby Third Street, which authorities later shut down. It is unclear whether or not any arrests were made.
