When police tried to quell the disturbance at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, several in the audience turned on them and began pelting officers with bottles and other objects.

“With no apparent hope of continuing the show peacefully, the Pasadena Police Department announced that the show would not continue and asked the audience to leave quietly,” the department said in a statement.

Most people complied and, despite some isolated scuffles outside the auditorium between officers and members of the audience, no one was arrested and no one was reported hurt.

The second annual The Source Hip-Hop Awards Show was being taped for broadcast on UPN August 29, but network officials said the fate of that broadcast is now in doubt.

“It is indeed unfortunate that the irresponsible actions of a few individuals marred a celebration of the best in hip-hop music and culture,” UPN said in a statement.

This year’s show began on an upbeat note with some of the biggest names in hip-hop stopping to chat with fans and reporters outside the Pasadena Civic Auditorium as they arrived for the show.

Among those being honored were Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, who received lifetime achievement awards.
