Rap mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ latest signing Machine Gun Kelly was arrested on Friday for organising a ‘flash mob’ that caused a security nightmare at a Cleveland, Ohio mall.
The local hero, real name Colson Baker, invited fans to join him at the South Park Mall via Twitter.com – and hundreds of followers showed up.

He coordinated the mob scene by writing, “No one move til you hear (song) Cleveland start, once it starts run to whatever table i’m at and Lets bust a mid-mall crowd surf and RAGE HARD!!!

“I’ll bring the camera, and don’t move/talk till the song plays at 5pm in foodcourt on Friday night.”

The chaos was caught on camera, as was Kelly’s encounter with a police officer who handcuffed him and led him away from the scene.

The rapper’s management later tweeted “MGK and the boys” were in a holding cell. Upon his release from custody, a defiant Kelly tweeted, “If havin fun with my fans and bringin the rage back to my hometown means I have to be arrested… then keep pullin the cuffs out (sic).”
