Rockers Linkin Park have hit back at Sublime With Rome frontman Rome Ramirez after he accused the Crawling hitmakers of tipping police off to their drug stash at a weekend concert in Arizona. Ramirez took to his Twitter.com blog on Sunday (25May14) to blast Mike Shinoda and his bandmates after cops raided Sublime with Rome's dressing room and confiscated their marijuana while they were onstage at the KFMA Day bash in Tuscon. He claimed the raid occurred after a member of Linkin Park's entourage complained to event security about being allergic to cannabis smoke, and he subsequently branded the group "Linkin Nark". However, a representative for Linkin Park has now fired off a statement denying the claims, saying: "Rome Ramirez's allegations are 100 per cent false. "No one from Linkin Park's camp said anything to the police or any other authorities regarding the activities taking place in Sublime's dressing room."
