Tyga hauled away by police outside Hollywood nightclub


Tyga was seen being hauled away by police after leaving Hollywood's Avenue Nightclub on Tuesday night.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department tells ET that during a traffic stop conducted in Hollywood, law enforcement noticed that the 27-year-old rapper's Mercedes G-Wagon had only paper plates. Officers also decided to conduct a field sobriety test upon stopping Tyga, born Michael Ray Stevenson, but due to the amount of paparazzi in the area, they instead transported him to a local station, where he took a field sobriety test and passed.

Police then released Tyga and he was cited for a minor traffic violation.

While with police, the paparazzi asked Tyga why he was being taken into custody. "Because I have paper plates," he answered, referring to his vehicle. "I just bought it."

Earlier that day, Tyga posted some photos to Instagram of his new Mercedes G-Wagon.

While Tyga was having a slight run-in with law enforcement, Kylie Jenner -- who's been in an on-again, off-again relationship with the rapper for years -- was also out and about in Los Angeles, making an appearance at the PrettyLittleThing Campaign launch.
