The rapper known as "Tyler, the Creator," was arrested after authorities said he got rowdy following a show in West Hollywood.

Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said the rapper was arrested on Thursday night after he appeared in a show with his group, Odd Future, and destroyed the electronic soundboard at the Roxy Theatre.

Authorities said Roxy security guards called deputies, and the 20-year-old rapper, whose real name is Tyler Gregory Okonma, was booked on suspicion of felony vandalism.

He was released Friday on $20,000 bail.
