Rapper Kid Cudi has been involved in an altercation that has resulted in the Cleveland native being tasered and apprehended by authorities, according to multiple sources.
Detail are sketchy, but the rapper apparently was involved in a fight or altercation while at the Reebok party in Phoenix, Arizona. Much of the music industry is in the city celebrating the NBA's popular All-Star weekend.
Eyewitnesses stated that Kid Cudi physically and verbally confronted a pair of Reebok employees. The artist was booked by the apparel company to perform at the venue.
Sources said that Cudi wanted to wear Jordan sneakers on stage, a move that did not agree with the people of Reebok.
Authorities intervened after the confrontation escalated and Cudi was tasered, a move to control his behavior.
The rapper was presumed arrested by police, but actual charges have not been revealed.
A representative for Kid Cudi was not available at press time.
