Did Linkin Park call the cops on Sublime with Rome for weed possession? According to Rome Ramirez, that’s exactly what happened during the 2014 KFMA Day festival in Tucson, Ariz.

After the 1996 death of Sublime mastermind Bradley Nowell, the reggae rock giants were forced to split up. However, in 2009, original Sublime members Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson reunited with the then 20-year-old Ramirez to play for ecstatic crowds. After a lawsuit over the Sublime name, the new lineup began performing under the moniker of Sublime with Rome.

As for the alleged Linkin Park marijuana fiasco, the band performed on the same bill as Sublime with Rome in Tucson, Ariz. on May 24. That same day, Rome Ramirez tweeted about Linkin Park’s apparent call to the cops:

Did Linkin Park in fact become Linkin Nark? Earlier today, Linkin Park multi-instrumentalist and co-vocalist Mike Shinoda denied Rome’s claims via Twitter:

Update: Rome has posted a TMZ summary of the alleged police report via his Instagram page:

Sublime with Rome are currently working on a new album aimed for a 2015 release. Linkin Park’s sixth studio album, ‘The Hunting Party,’ will hit shelves in North America on June 17.
