Travis Scott arrested in USA for ‘inciting a riot’
Travis Scott has been arrested following a concert in north-west Arkansas.
Police in the city of Rogers said in a Facebook post that Scott, whose real name is Jacques Webster, was arrested following a concert Saturday night on charges of inciting a riot, disorderly conduct and endangering the welfare of a minor.
Police said Webster encouraged people to bypass security and rush the stage, resulting in injuries to a security guard, a police officer and several others.
On May 13, 2017, Jaques Webster, aka Travis Scott, was arrested by the Rogers Police Department after his performance at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion (AMP). During the concert Webster encouraged people to rush the stage and bypass the security protocols to ensure concert goer safety.
The conditions of the injured were not released.
The post said Webster was taken to the Benton County Sheriff’s Office, but county jail records did not list him as an inmate Sunday and the company listed as his agent did not immediately return a phone call and an email for comment when contacted by the Associated Press.
