Skrillex was asked to step out of his Tesla this week in L.A., then handcuffed, because he was bumping Skrillex bangers too loudly in the whip. TMZ reports that Mr. Sonny Moore before the powers of dubstep transformed him into an EDM messiah, was driving on Sunset Strip with his music "blaring for all to hear." To which we say, share your gift, man.

Skrillex was cuffed for not having ID on him when dealing with the noise concern. "Cops somehow figured out he was Skrillex and the car was his," the site writes. "They uncuffed him, cited him for a noise violation and driving without proper ID, and let him go on his merry way."

Skrrrrtlex hit up billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk to thank him for the fire sound system:
