Tyler, the Creator Arrested for Inciting a Riot at SXSW


Tyler, the Creator was arrested today on his way out of Austin. Police stopped the Odd Future MC at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport with a warrant for his arrest. The charge? Inciting a riot. Two days earlier, while playing the Scoot Inn — his show was originally scheduled at Mohawk but was subsequently cancelled after the tragedy — the rapper roused hundreds of fans watching from the street to storm the gates of the already-at-capacity venue, according to SPIN. You can see it all go down, with Tyler yelling, “Just run in right now! Fucking do it, let’s go!,” in the video footage below obtained by TMZ. Tyler has been charged with Riot-Class A Misdemeanor and his bail has been set at $25,000.
