Mac DeMarco arrested at Santa Barbara show this weekend

17 November 2014, 10:49 | Written by Laurence Day

Nefarious rapscallion Mac DeMarco was arrested during a recent show at UCSB (University Of California, Santa Barbara).

The Santa Barbara Independent reported that the singer-songwriter was detained “after he was crowd surfing and climbing in the venue’s ceiling beams.”

The paper noted that this was the second time over the evening that the police stopped the show - the first time was for pesky concert-goers violently moshing. They then added that "the show went on, but was interrupted again after UCSB police officers detained DeMarco for sitting up in the railings. DeMarco was propped up to the beams by attendees after he surfed the crowd. He climbed to the second floor of the venue and walked down the stairs back to the stage where police officers detained him. According to [Lt. Mark Signa], it wasn’t until the police officers spoke to DeMarco outside that they realized he was the lead singer."
