By now you may have heard about the story of how Sublime With Rome singer Rome Ramirez alleged on his Twitter account that Linkin Park had snitched on the band for smoking weed, prompting "cops" (Rome's words) to seize the band's drugs.
Read a detailed play-by-play of the "Linkin Nark" controversy here.
Here's the entire report, which shows that yes, someone from Linkin Park did approach the cops. And as we've already noted, singer Mike Shinoda tweeted that anyone who approached the cops on behalf of the band did so without the band's blessing. "They were out of line," wrote Shinoda.
Here's the police report from the Pima County Sheriff's Department in its entirety. Make the call for yourself.
