Tyler the Creator Arrested For Inciting a Riot
Tyler the Creator was arrested Saturday afternoon at an airport in Texas after a warrant for the rapper’s arrest was issued due to a riot he allegedly started at the SXSW festival.
TMZ obtained a copy of a video of the riot and Tyler is undoubtedly telling the crowd to break down the barricade to get in…and everyone does as they’re told.
Tyler’s concert was cancelled the night before due to a driver crashing their vehicle into a crowd of people waiting to get in. Two people were reported dead and 23 injured.
According to the warrant a bartender at the facility told Austin PD officials he tried protecting a woman from getting trampled on, however he was punched in the face for attempting to defend the woman.
Tyler is currently in custody on a $3,500 bond.
Check out a clip of the mayhem below.
