Machine Gun Kelly Arrested for Disorderly Conduct [Video]

Diddy’s latest Bad Boy signee, Machine Gun Kelly, was arrested on Saturday (August 20) and charged with disorderly conduct, after inciting a flash mob in a Cleveland mall.

According to Fox 8 Cleveland, it all started when Kelly took to his Twitter account, to gather fans at South Park Mall, where he would be playing his hometown anthem, “Cleveland.”

“Today we flash mob NO MATTER WHAT,” he wrote. “5pm at SouthPark mall in the foodcourt, wear disguises, dont move to you hear ‘Cleveland’ play then RAGE (sic)!”

Hundreds of fans showed up and, although cautioned by police (who were tipped to the event, not to get on a table) MGK ignored the police’s warning. He was then yanked down and put in handcuffs. The crowd chanted his initials as he was led out of the mall.

Kelly was charged and quickly released. He immediately took to Twitter to react.”If havin fun with my fans and bringin the rage back to my hometown means I have to be arrested…then keep pullin the cuffs out (sic),” he said. —Elan Mancini

    ya know the fact is music shouldn’t really have to be a matter of “race” MGK made his name by his live show, and how real & relatable his lyrics are to other ppl. Sorry but bein white doesn’t mean you don’t go through shyt too everybody of ALL races and colors go through shyt. Is it cool that he got arrested? Nah, but what is cool is that he was trying to get in touch and do something FREE for and WITH his fans, how many rap acts do any of that shyt anymore? You saw how big that crowd was and 10 to 1 odds is they will buy his album and mixtapes as soon as they drop more than they already do.
