Did Linkin Park Snitch on Sublime With Rome at KFMA Day?

Posted By on Tue, May 27, 2014 at 11:03 AM

It's not a KFMA Day Festival if there isn't a controversy before the headliner hits the stage. My news feed was full of friends and family snapping selfies and grumbling about weather conditions on Saturday, May 24, at the outdoor music Fest in the Kino Stadium. The enthusiastic tone took an abrupt turn when Rome Ramirez, Sublime's lead singer, started tweeting from the event.

Rome accused Linkin Park of calling the cops on the band for smoking marijuana, so the authorities confiscated their drug paraphernalia. There's a rumor that the band was "allergic to pot." Stranger things have happened?

So, naturally Rome took his pent-up aggression to Twitter:

I feel like Linkin Park had better things to do than "snitch" the band that's notorious for smoking jazz cigarettes. The band hasn't commented on the allegations at this time. On the bright side, Tucson fans were the first crowd to hear new tunes from Linkin Park's upcoming album, The Hunting Party.


The Phoenix New Times has brought some closure to this ridiculous situation:
Update 11:24 a.m.: We reached out to Linkin Park's publicist about the allegations, and she issued the following response:
"Rome Ramirez's allegations are 100% false. 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."

Who's ready for more "Link Narc" debauchery?

The police report states that a security guard, acted as member of the Linkin Park, approached an off-duty deputy and reported that Sublime was smoking some wacky-tobaccy in their dressing room. 

From  New Times:
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.
Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda tried to set the record straight on Twitter, of course:
