Travis Scott plead not guilty to Rogers, Arkansas charges of inciting a riot, endangering the welfare of a child, and disorderly conduct at his May 13. He was arrested and held for a short time before he was released.


According to the Northwest Arkansas Democratic Gazette, Scott's lawyer Drew Ledbetter had Scott's court appearance waived and entered a plea of 'Not Guilty.' Travis Scott has another scheduled court appearance for June 1, but it is not unusual for a lawyers to waive their clients appearances for arraignments.

Scott has made the best of the situation and sold T-shirts with his mug shot on them on his website for a limited time. Since the Arkansas show he has also released three new songs and broke a record for performing "Goosebumps" more times in a row than any other song, beating out Kanye West and Jay Z.

Scott faced similar issues recently, when fans at his Terminal 5 show began jumping from the balconies, and one fan broke his leg.

"Travis Scott had no criminal intent," Ledbetter told Democratic Gazette. "He only intended to put on a good show."
