A scheduled show in Colorado Springs, Colorado for DMX turned into a riot on Friday (October 16), after the rapper wasn’t denied access to the stage to perform by security guards.

According to reports, X arrived at the venue at around 11:00 p.m. — which was put on by non-profit organization American Charities — but he was told he could not perform because he was supposed to be there by 9:30 p.m., so fans were told he wasn’t coming.

When the rapper clashed with security over being denied entry, he became irate. At some point, security threatened to arrest the rapper.

“[Arrest me] for what?! You ain’t no police!” DMX argued. “I’ve been paid to perform.”

Despite warnings, DMX tried to force his way onstage, and this is when authorities tackled him to the ground.

His entourage and fans joined the fracas, and DMX’s publicist Pam Pinnock reportedly suffered a minor concussion and face laceration after being trampled on the floor. Read more.
