Hip-hop hipster, Cleveland native, and actor Kid Cudi was arrested over the weekend.

He's been charged with criminal mischief and possession of a controlled substance in NYC following an incident at a woman's apartment on Friday.

According to a report, Cudi (born Scott Mescudi) pounded on the woman's door repeatedly before getting all Hulk smash on the thing, ripping it off its hinges (which is actually kinda impressive, since Cudi doesn't seem like he's all that big of a guy).

Liquid cocaine was also found on the rapper.

This is the second time Cudi has been in trouble since the release of his debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, last year. In December he punched a fan in Vancouver after a show. —Michael Gallucci
