Tyler, the Creator Pays $8,000 to L.A. Club Following Vandalism Charges
Published Mar 05, 2012Odd Future star Tyler, the Creator has reportedly paid approximately $8,000 to an L.A. club he trashed during a gig late last year.
On top of the $8,000 settlement, TMZ reports that the rapper is set to meet with a Hollywood District Attorney to further discuss the incident, where it will be recommended he also pay investigation costs incurred by the West Hollywood Sheriff's Department. Apparently, if he complies no criminal charges will be brought against the rapper.
The December incident at L.A.'s Roxy found Tyler smashing some sound gear after he unsuccessfully tried to calm down the crowd and get security to help two girls he believed to have been injured in a mosh pit. According to the Creator, things got heated once he realized his microphone wasn't being brought up in the mix.
At the time, Tyler said, "i jump on his sound board and say' nigga turn my fucking mic up its bitches hurt, let me tell the crowd to calm down, they listen to me' this nigga goes on saying he doesnt have control his manager said this and that. i keep asking, we go back and forth. i kick the plexi glass and stomp on the cheap ass soundboard, then throw my mike on the floor."
Following the gig, Tyler, the Creator was arrested and escorted away from the venue by police.
