Erick Morillo had to be escorted off the stage just 45 minutes into a set last Saturday night, reportedly due to “erratic behaviour.”
According to reports, Morillo already looked out of it when he took to the decks, and his condition only worsened once his set began.
Then, at one point he vanished from the crowd’s view completely, leaving the audience at the Ocean Club in Quincy, Massachusetts hanging as a single loop started playing over and over again.
It was at that point that his set was cancelled and security removed him and his manager from the venue.
In the wake of the event, Morillo took to his Twitter to announce he’s going to lay low for a while.
“The time has come to take a break and refocus my attention on my health and well-being. Thank you to my fans and your enduring love and support,” he said.
In 2009, Morillo was charged with possession of cocaine while performing in Glasgow, although the charges were later dropped.
