It Finally Happened… Travis $cott Arrested in Arkansas for Inciting a Riot
Travis Scott loves to get his fans turnt all the way up at his shows but sometimes, the line gets crossed.
The rapper was performing in Rogers, Arkansas on Saturday night and immediately after the show, booked by law enforcement agencies for inciting a riot as well as endangering welfare of a minor and disorderly conduct, TMZ reports. He didn’t have to go to jail though as he was released without bail before midnight, but would have to return to the state for a court date.
Arkansas police issued this statement about Travis Scott’s arrest:
Travis encouraged people to rush the stage at his show, bypassing security protocols in the process. They add … several people were injured, including a security guard and a cop.
A source close to Travis told TMZ that he saw available space in the general admission toward the front, so he invited seated guests in the back to come forward. We’re told he had no intention of putting anyone in danger.

Travis has been in a similar situation earlier as well. Back in 2015, LaFlame was arrested at his Lollapalooza set in Chicago on similar charges of inciting a riot. Recently during a concert in NYC, Travis encouraged fans to jump from balconies where a fan was seriously injured.
