What's going on with Massachusetts?
Police in the Bay State city of Charlton have just warned residents about a roving gang of battle rappers who challenge innocent bystanders to “spit some bars.”
Now we learn the police in Westfield fined a DJ for playing the N.W.A. track 'Fuck The Police.'
The incident happened in October. The cops were trying to clear out the appropriately named Shenanigans Pub for being over capacity when DJ Boogy -- 25-year old Kashawn Harris -- put on the N.W.A classic.
"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.Boogy didn't realize he was being charged with disorderly conduct until he received a summons in the mail. He was found guilty last week, and got a $50 fine.
"I had no intention of inciting a riot," Harris said after he was found guilty. "It was just college kids having fun."He also claimed that he had cued up 'Fuck The Police' before the actual police arrived.
