The superproducer was performing a set at the Rolling Stone Live: Houston bash at the city's Museum of Fine Arts, when authorities swarmed the venue.

One officer took over the stage and grabbed the microphone as he pulled the plug on the show, telling the crowd to leave.

In video footage obtained by TMZ.com, the cop was shown telling the audience, "Party's over," prompting fans to boo.

Diplo made light of the issue in a post on Twitter later in the night, tweeting, "Houston we have a problem".

Police reportedly shut down the event as it overran a curfew.
