Rapper Pleads Not Guilty To Inciting A Riot At His Concert Last Weekend
Travis Scott, who was arrested for inciting a riot during his concert in Rogers, Arkansas last weekend, is pleading not guilty to the charges.
Police claimed that the rapper encouraged fans to bypass security to rush the stage, causing injury to a security guard, a police officer and several others in attendance. He was arrested immediately following the show on charges of inciting a riot, disorderly conduct ad endangering the welfare of a minor, TMZ reported.
The rapper, whose legal name is Jaques Webster, has plead not guilty to all three charges from the rowdy concert, according to Page Six.
Webster’s attorney, Drew Ledbetter, said his client “only intended to put on a good show.”
The “Go Off” rapper has landed himself in trouble for encouraging fans to rush the stage before at Lollapalooza a few years ago. He also recently encouraged fans to jump from the balconies down to the main floor of a New York City venue.
Scott is scheduled to perform this weekend in Michigan.
