Police shut down the Midland concert after a police office suffers multiple injuries during an incident, which happens before the member of Three 6 Mafia arrives at the venue.
Local police shut down Juicy J's concert, which was supposed to be held in Midland's Cabana Sports Bar on Saturday night, July 13. According to Juicy's videographer, Ted Cadillac, the cancellation came after a police officer got attacked in an incident that happened before the 38-year-old rapper arrived at the venue.
Cadillac said that the officer was on the stage when he was beaten up and hit with a bottle. At least 10 police cars were seen arriving on the scene and the cops eventually canceled the show.
Juicy expressed his disappointment of the canceled show in a video posted on Instagram. In the short video, he talks to the camera, "Midland, Texas, I'm here but I that see the police shut the place down. What the f**k happened, man? I wanted to party, man."
Details about the incident are currently unknown. Police has said that the incident is still under investigation.
"As an owner of a venue that allows many top national artist come to perform, I owe it to our customers to provide top security for their enjoyment," Edwin Jaquez, the owner of Cabana Bar and Mexican Grill, told NewsWest 9 in a statement.
"It is disappointing to me and my staff for these people who come into the venue but because of the immaturity of a few people the opportunity to see Juicy J and Z-RO was missed," he added. "Two people got hurt and were sent to the hospital for treatment- in respect for the injured- the police ended the event because now it was a crime scene."
YNC Promotions, who brought the artists, also released a statement that said, "We would like to apologize publicly to the fans and people in attendance. Unfortunately, our headliners were unable to perform due to unforeseen circumstances. We are currently working on a make up date with both artists."
YNC promotions also said that there would be no ticket refund, saying, "As of right now, we are not refunding tickets, due to the fact that both artist arrived on the scene and were present before any incidents took place. We will release more info on the make up date as it comes out."
