Skrillex Blames Elon Musk for Traffic Stop

He was blasting his own demos when he was pulled over

 By Abby Hassler

Police pulled over Skrillex Wednesday night (April 19) for playing his music too loud. Once the cop discovered the DJ did not have his ID on him while driving his Tesla, they slapped on some handcuffs.

A fan video caught the whole ordeal on tape. Once the officers realized who he was, they took off the handcuffs, issuing the DJ tickets for a noise violation and driving without proper ID.

Taking to social media after the experience, Skrillex jokingly blamed Tesla CEO Elon Musk, writing “Leave it to me to play my music ‘too loud’ ..these new demos are 🔥 tho @elonmusk” and “@elonmusk ur system in the tesla model x is just too 🔥🔥🔥🔥”

He continued, clarifying, “Just to be clear , I got pulled over for playing my music too loud … but handcuffed because I didn’t have my ID on me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯”
