(SL) – Well, this isn’t the first time this has happened. But considering that there have been a number of video released showing die-hard Travis Scott fans jumping from balconies; I think authorities are trying to give him a hint. “Tone it down.”
The Rogers Police Department reports that the “Antidote” rapper, 25, was arrested soon after he left the stage at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion.
Police say 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 is being charged with inciting a riot, endangering the welfare of a minor and disorderly conduct and was transported to the Benton County Sheriff’s office. He was booked at the Benton County Detention Center at 11:14 p.m. He was released at 11:26 p.m.
This isn’t the first time (or even the second time) that Scott’s caused some mayhem during shows. Earlier in the month, he was filmed encouraging fans to jump from a balcony at a concert in New York City.
Video shows Scott encouraging a fan to jump from the third floor. The fan broke his leg and Travis was videotaped giving the guy a $100,000 dollar ring as he lay on the ground unable to stand.
No word yet on if the fan plans on suing Scott. Which is unlikely, seeing that no one pushed him. But you never know. In addition, he was arrested after allegedly calling on fans to jump the barricades at Lollapalooza 2015. And there was also an incident in Chicago that led to his arrest as well.
Earth to Travis…Keep the energy but don’t encourage fans to jump or bum-rush the stage. Kids.
