On Saturday, Action Bronson reportedly ended up in handcuffs after smoking marijuana during his performance at the 2018 Sunny Hill Festival in Kosovo. 

With Bronson serving as the lone American act on the bill, he definitely left an impression on the European crowd when he sparked a joint onstage before performing his song "Terry." According to TMZ, the cops inside the venue weren't thrilled with the move and quickly escorted him to their local police station. There, Bronson was booked and and later released, a police spokesperson told TMZ

In an interview with Hot 97 this past June, Bronson quipped about how smoking a new strain of marijuana ultimately led to him cutting off his signature beard. “I was high out of my mind…it was this new strain,” he said. “I never have clippers in my house for this reason. I usually call somebody to come help me out and come do that. I just started trimming and it went bad, it went awry,” he said. 

Billboard reached out to Bronson's reps for comment. Watch his performance below.
