Posted By on May 13, 2011

     Odd Future leader Tyler The Creator recently came forward to confirm all the speculation that he was briefly detained by police earlier this week while promoting his new "Goblin" album. While on New York radio station Hot 97 today (May 13th), Tyler denied claims that it was a publicity stunt.

"All me and this dude did was skate past, uh, I guess it was a cop there we skated past," Tyler said in an interview. "And they just came up to us all aggressive like, 'Who are you?' and got out of the car. And I'm like, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Why, why? What do you need?' I know he's grabbing my arm saying, 'Oh, you want to be a tough guy.' When I'm around cops, I get really, really deviant and sarcastic." (Hot 97)
