Rapper Machine Gun Kelly was arrested last night after performing in St. Petersburg, California. MTV’s 2011 Hottest Breakthrough MC winner was arrested at 4 in the morning. The rapper posted bail and was released shortly after his arrest.
Machine Gun Kelly wrote on Twitter:
“Just spent my entire night in a f–king Florida jail… sh– escalated way to quick last night, it always does with us though. Thanking God that only half of us went to jail, that @216XPLOSIVE is outta the hospital, and that we get to go back to Cleveland today…”
The Baltimore Sun reports that the Florida officials aren’t releasing details about MGK’s arrest but wrote “brawling” as the crime description. The rapper wasn’t too happy about being arrested but said that it was fun hanging out with all of his fans in jail. Machine Gun Kelly wrote:
“The weirdest part of it was how any inmates in there knew who I was and knew about the movement. It was some trippy sh–. Lace the F–K up,” he wrote before firing off his last tweet about the matter. “Anyways, thank you Florida for ragin this week. Lookin forward to seeing every state during this spring/summer tour (no more handcuffs tho!)”
