Linkin Park Security Guard (Or Someone Claiming to Be) Alerted Cops to Sublime's Weed

Is this the face of an anti-marijuana crusader?

Update 5/29 12:45 p.m.: Sublime With Rome's manager said that Brad Delson, Linkin Park guitarist, is responsible for alerting the police to Sublime's stash. Read more here.

Update 5/28 4:30 p.m.: Read the entire police report here.

Update 5/28 1:57 p.m.: We are starting to get somewhere. The Pima County Sheriff's Department, which had deputies at the concert, has sent us a copy of the police report associated with the incident. The quick and dirty: A Linkin Park security guard approached an off-duty deputy at around 6:50 p.m. to complain about Sublime smoking marijuana.

"The smoke was irritating one of the band members and he is, indeed, allergic to marijuana smoke. They were requesting for us to talk to the band to tell them to stop smoking the marijuana inside," the report reads.

The officers approached Sublime's dressing room.

"We could smell an overwhelming odor of burnt marijuana in the hallway and approaching the door. The door was unlocked and as we proceeded in, we noted that there was nobody in the room itself; however, in plain view, were several bags of marijuana," the report reads.

The officers proceeded to confiscate the marijuana and some paraphernalia, including "bags of marijuana, a glass pipe, Zigzags and several roaches that were used to smoke." Then they left a card with the case number in the dressing room and returned to security duties at the concert.

So, the police report says that a security guard -- acting on behalf of an unnamed band member -- approached Pima County deputies about Sublime's marijuana use. We've reached out to Linkin Park's spokeswoman for further clarification. But in the meantime, Linkin Park's lead rapper Mike Shinoda has addressed the issue on Twitter.

There you have it. Deputy says he was approached by someone claiming to represent the band; said person complains about marijuana use; Sublime's marijuana gets confiscated; Sublime singer publicly alleges Linkin Park called the cops on them; Linkin Park singer says anyone who did such a thing in the band's name did so without the band's permission. Follow all that?

No word yet on whether Pima County will file charges against members of Sublime. Will continue to update as more information comes in.

Someone should call the police on Linkin Park for making such bad music.

Why do we people put up with cops policing marijuana use? If anything, that crowd should have used a show of force to let the cops know that anti-marijuana police action will not be tolerated. We have the numbers and can use that advantage to control the police and how they behave. Its about holding them accountable in realtime.

It should be noted that Sublime and Rome make music, while LP sucks barrels of shit in front of an audience. Just an observation.
