Skrillex later tweeted that he had been playing his music too loud, tagging Elon Musk in the tweet because he had been driving a Tesla.
The electronic producer was pulled over by the LAPD in Hollywood and handcuffed by officers, with the incident filmed by a fan. Twitter user Colby Lila Kline shared clips of the incident on her page.

Skrillex made no attempts to hide the humorous situation and turned to congratulating Elon Musk - the man behind the producer's vehicle - via Twitter on the Tesla's incredible sound system. He noted that he was listening to demos in his Tesla Model X when police made a decision to cuff him after claiming this music was too loud.
