Kylie Jenner‘s new boyfriend, Travis Scott, was arrested for inciting a riot during his concert in Rogers, Arkansas, on Saturday, May 13, US Weekly can confirm.
The Rogers Police Department tells Us that the “Antidote” rapper, 25, was arrested soon after he left the stage at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion.
Police tell Us that during the concert Scott (real name: Jacques Webster) “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. The injured people were treated at the scene by members of the Rogers Fire Department and Mercy Medical.
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 was previously 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. ABC 7 reported at the time that Scott’s performance at the festival lasted just five minutes before it was shut down.
More recently, the Houston native encouraged a fan to jump from a third story balcony during a concert in New York. Video of the incident went viral on social media, though he was not arrested.
Scott’s tour photographer Ray appeared to confirm the news on Instagram on Sunday afternoon, sharing pictures of the rapper with the caption, “#freetravisscott.” Several fans also tweeted the hashtag, causing it to trend on Twitter.
As Us Weekly previously reported, Scott began dating Jenner, 19, shortly after her split from longtime boyfriend Tyga. “Travis is telling friends that he and Kylie are the real deal,” a source told Us of the budding romance.
