Update 11:24 a.m.: We reached out to Linkin Park's publicist about the allegations, and she issued the following response:UPDATE #2:
"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."
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:
LP didn't "call the cops" on @RomeMusica smoking pot. Not sure where the rumor came from. Definitely not my style, bummer it happened.— Mike Shinoda (@mikeshinoda) May 27, 2014
If someone was "representing the band" to the cops in the venue about weed smoke, they were out of line.— Mike Shinoda (@mikeshinoda) May 27, 2014
