Levine hit by sugar bomb

Los Angeles - A man was arrested after allegedly "sugar-bombing" Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine and four others outside Jimmy Kimmel's studio in Hollywood on Wednesday, reports said.

Levine, 36, had just made an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show and was greeting fans when it happened.

A police officer said Navid Farsi, 28, was arrested on suspicion of battery for striking him and others with a bag of powdered sugar, reported the Los Angeles Times.

A fan posted photos on Instagram, showing Levine's face and body covered with the white substance and saying security staff tackled Farsi to the ground.

Levine was seen on video taking off his soiled jacket and walking off.
