A DJ was slapped with a fine after being found guilty of disorderly conduct following an altercation with police at a club, according to court documents in Massachusetts.
25-year-old Kashawn Harris of Springfield, also known as DJ Boogy, played “F**k The Police” as officers entered the Shenanigans Pub around 11:30 p.m., and attempted to remove the large crowd from the premises.
Harris was found guilty of disorderly conduct and was ordered to pay a fine of $50 after placing the police officers’ safety at risk.
According to the police investigation, officers were called to the club by the fire department after 350 people arrived to a party.
There is only room for 160 people at the club, and people heard glass bottles breaking on the ground as patrons began pushing and shoving one another.
Police officers who arrived at the scene, told people to leave, but due to the loud music, they were unable to hear the orders.
Police officers then ordered DJ Boogy to shut the music, but instead of complying, he played “F**k The Police.” DJ Boogy denied intentionally playing the song, saying that the song was programmed to play even before police arrived.
