Travis Scott spent time in the hoosegow over the weekend for inciting a riot during his concert in Rogers, Arkansas.
The Rogers Police Department has released a statement saying that the “Goosebumps” rapper, real name Jacques Webster, 25, was arrested soon after he left the stage at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion after he “encouraged people to rush the stage and bypass the security protocols to ensure concertgoer safety.”
Several people were injured as the crowd rushed to the stage, including a security guard and a member of the police department. Scott was charged with inciting a riot, endangering the welfare of a minor and disorderly conduct and was transported to the Benton County Sheriff’s office. TMZ reports that he was released without bail at approximately 11:30 p.m.
Scott, who has been dating Kylie Jenner, is known for rowdy concert antics (check him out encouraging a fan to jump at a recent New York show), having been arrested for a similar incident in Chicago in August 2015, when he was charged with disorderly conduct after encouraging Lollapalooza attendees to climb over security barricades and storm the stage.
