DJ Arrested for Playing “F Tha Police” During a Raid
A DJ in Massachusetts learned a lesson the hard way last week. Back in October of 2015 he was arrested for playing N.W.A’s “Fuck Tha Police” as authorities were raiding the bar. Not a good move! He soon found that out when he was officially charged for disorderly conduct.
“I believed at that time the combination of alcohol, the excessive amount of people in the bar and the song that the DJ chose to play at that time was an intentional act by the DJ to incite the crowd which showed a reckless disregard for public safety,” Officer Juanita Mejias wrote in her report.
For his part, Harris doesn’t believe he did anything wrong. In an interview, he claimed the bar was almost nearly cleared when the song began to play. According to Harris, the song was already cued to play before the police interrupted the party and only a small snippet played before it was shut off.
“I had no intention of inciting a riot,” Harris said. “It was just college kids having fun.”
The fine that Harris had to pay was a meager pittance, a small $50. However, it’s not likely that Harris will forget this experience soon.
