Brad Delson of Linkin Park Snitched on Sublime With Rome, Manager Says

We've been reporting on the "Linkin Nark" fiasco, and the latest salvo has come from Sublime With Rome's manager, who named Linkin Park guitarist Brad Delson as the man responsible for getting Sublime's weed seized by police.
Sublime With Rome manager Mike "Cheeze" Brown -- yes, that's his preferred moniker -- went on Beef Vegan's show over on 93.9 KWSS this morning to shed some more light on the issue.
"It was Brad [Delson], the guitar player in the band, [who] had complained to their security people," Brown said.
Both Sublime and Linkin Park were playing a show in Tucson. Apparently, while Sublime was on stage, a security guard alerted an off-duty Pima County Sheriff's Department deputy to the presence of said contraband in Sublime With Rome's dressing room. Until now, it was unclear who told the cops about the weed.
Luckily for Sublime, Brown said, it doesn't look like Pima County will file charges against the band.
Initially, Linkin Park rep denied the band had anything to do with the incident:
"No one from Linkin Park's camp said anything to the police or any other authorities regarding the activities taking place in Sublime's dressing room," the rep told New Times.
However, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report on the incident stated that a security guard acting on behalf one of the Linkin Parks members alerted cops to the weed. Mike Shinoda, Linkin Park's rapper, tweeted that anyone doing such a thing while representing the band was "out of line."
Now, Brown's manager has fingered Delson as the no-fun rat. But that's not all. Apparently Linkin Park offered to replace the band's confiscated weed in exchange for keeping quiet.
