Did Linkin Park Narc on Sublime?

Rome Ramirez, Sublime’s lead singer since 2009: "Linkin Park called the cops on us and said that they were allergic to pot."

Sublime's frontman Rome Ramirez says Linkin Park snitched on the band at their Tucson show on May 24. "Cops came and took all our weed while we were on stage," he tweeted. "Linkin Park called the cops on us and said that they were allergic to pot. That just happened. Linkin narc."

Linkin Park co-lead singer Mike Shinoda says it ain't so. "Not sure where the rumor came from," he responded. "Definitely not my style, bummer it happened."

But a police report obtained by TMZ points the finger at a Linkin Park security guard who tipped off deputies that Sublime were smoking weed backstage at Tucson Electric Park. Police confiscated some pot and paraphernalia, but no arrests were made.

Linkin Park's other frontman Chester Bennington is sober, which led to Linkin narcing on Sublime. Rome joined the group in 2009; only basst Eric Wilson remains from the original trio, which is now known as Sublime with Rome.
