CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Raw video from the roof of the 6922 Hollywood Boulevard building during the Electric Daisy Carnival Experience movie premiere where DJ Kaskade held an impromptu block party. Video shows crowd riot, fights, and disbursement.

Los Angeles police responded just before 7:00 p.m. Wednesday to the 6900 block of Hollywood Boulevard near the Mann Grauman’s Chinese Theater to the report of a disorderly crowd at an impromptu block party. The impromptu music block party was thrown by DJ Kaskade outside at the premiere of a movie about the Electric Daisy Carnival. The block party became a mob scene Wednesday night, when the crowd refused to disperse.

Fights broke out and people were seen lying prone in front of the police, as about 100 police officers in riot gear were on the scene. LAPD reports a suspect vandalized a police car while another assaulted a police officer. Police used bean bag guns to subdue the crowd. Two men and a woman were arrested.

Twenty people were detained for failing to disperse but were released.

The Hollywood/Highland Red Line station was closed, and Hollywood Boulevard buses were detoured due to the disturbance.

Kaskade pleaded with the crowd to disburse and remain calm — saying he was concerned for their safety.

Kaskade is the stage name for Ryan Raddon, of Evanston, Illinois, an American DJ and record producer. He grew up in nearby Northbrook, IL and attended Glenbrook North High School. He is the brother of Rich Raddon, an entrepreneur, film producer, and co-founder of — movie clip sharing company.

The Electric Daisy Carnival Experience is a film about a music festival with the same name, notorious for being the scene where a 15-year-old girl died of a drug overdose at the event held in July 2010 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Electric Daisy Carnial Experience has been attended by tens of thousands of people, and the venue has since been relocated to Las Vegas.
