Kid Cudi has been charged with criminal mischief and possession of a controlled substance after an incident Friday at a woman's apartment in New York City.

The artist, 26, whose real name is Scott Mescudi, repeatedly pounded on and kicked the downtown apartment's door, ultimately using his bodily force to tear it off its hinges, police sources confirm to PEOPLE. Cudi also broke the woman's cell phone.

The substance he was found in possession of was liquid cocaine, according to a report in The Guardian. Per police sources, it is unclear whether he was intoxicated at the time.

He did make his scheduled appearance at the Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee on Saturday, telling the crowd he "really wanted to be here tonight."
