DMX was performing at the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity house on the Indiana University campus yesterday when his set was cut short after a small riot broke out. Indiana Daily Student, the college's newspaper, is reporting that DMX's show was supposed to begin at 8:30pm and run for an hour but when DMX got there late and didn't take the stage until 9:30pm, campus police went in to shut the performance down.
When police removed DMX from the stage, the crowd got agitated and started to yell at the officers. More campus police were called in and eventually were also joined by Bloomington Police and State Police officers. At one point, the entire front row of the audience was maced. Lauren Smith, a junior at the school, said that DMX had liquor on stage with him and promised to share it with students. “All of sudden, cops came on the stage so I thought he might be getting in trouble for alcohol,” Smith told the Daily Student. The maced students ran out onto nearby Third Street, which authorities later shut down. It is unclear whether or not any arrests were made.
