Tyga Hauled Away by Police Outside Hollywood Nightclub

Meanwhile, Kylie Jenner was at another event in Los Angeles.

Tyga was seen being hauled away in handcuffs by police after leaving Hollywood's Avenue Nightclub on Tuesday night.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department tells ET that during a traffic stop conducted in Hollywood, law enforcement noticed that the 27-year-old rapper's Mercedes G-Wagon had only paper plates. Officers also decided to conduct a field sobriety test upon stopping Tyga, born Michael Ray Stevenson, but due to the amount of paparazzi in the area, they instead put him in a patrol car and transported him to a local station, where he took a field sobriety test and passed.

Police then released Tyga and he was cited for a minor traffic violation.

While with police, the paparazzi asked Tyga if he thought they were racially profiling him. "'Cause I'm a good looking rapper," he responded.

An eyewitness tells ET that Tyga did not seem mad or upset.


Earlier that day, Tyga posted some photos to Instagram of his new Mercedes G-Wagon.

While Tyga was having a slight run-in with law enforcement, Kylie Jenner -- who's been in an on-again, off-again relationship with the rapper for years -- was also out and about in Los Angeles, making an appearance at the PrettyLittleThing Campaign launch.
