Published May 11, 2011

Tyler, the Creator raps about causing all sorts of mayhem, so having a brush with the law on the release date of his new album, Goblin, seems only appropriate.

Yesterday while promoting Goblin outside a Los Angeles high school, the Odd Future leader apparently ran afoul with local law enforcement. On Twitter, Tyler posted a photograph showing himself being handcuffed by a police officer who reportedly confiscated his skateboard. The 20-year-old star was not amused.

"F**K POLICE F**K YOU ALL I HOPE YOU ALL DIE," he Tweeted in a series of angry rants. "I Have a Great Lawyer."

Despite the photo and fallout, sources at the Pacific Division police department told XXLMag.com, no official arrest was made. Tyler ended the night playing a show at a venue in West Hollywood.
