Hip-hop artist Action Bronson was arrested for smoking weed at a music festival in Kosovo Saturday, according to media reports. Bronson was on stage performing at the Sunny Hill Festival over the weekend when he fired up a joint on stage. After taking a few hearty puffs, he shared his weed with his fans by flicking the joint into the crowd. A video of Bronson lighting and hitting the joint was posted to Instagram.
The display apparently did not sit well with police, who arrested Bronson at the venue. After being taken into police custody, he was subsequently released. The terms of his release or details of any charges or potential prosecution are not clear at this time.
A police spokesman released a statement following Bronson’s release.
“Following the interview with the competent prosecutor’s order the same was released,” the spokesman said, according to a translation of his statement.
The Sunny Hill Festival was billed as the largest music festival to ever be held in Kosovo. The festival was held August 10-12 at Germia National Park in Pristina, the capital city of the southeastern European state that declared independence from Serbia in 2008.
