Rapper Kid Cudi was arrested in New York on Friday following an altercation with an unidentified woman.
Cudi, whose real name is Scott Mescudi, 26, got into an argument with a woman inside her apartment on West 24th Street at 4:15AM June 11, police officials say. Enraged, the 24-year-old star allegedly smashed the victim’s cellphone and ripped the door of her apartment off its hinges in a fit of anger. Police arrived on the scene a short time later and discovered a glass bottle of a controlled substance at the scene.
Cudi was promptly taken into custody. The Cleveland native, who now lives in the trendy NYC neighborhood of Tribeca, was charged with criminal mischief and possession of a controlled substance.
