Tyler, The Creator Arrested For Inciting Riot


Tyler, The Creator’s not normal ways have gotten him into some serious trouble as the rapper was arrested in Austin-Bergstrom International Airport today (March 15) on charges related to inciting a riot at the SXSW Festival earlier in the week. According to a report by TMZ, the Odd Future front man was taken into custody by officers armed with a warrant for his arrest for an incident that happened at during one of the rapper’s shows at the storied music festival on Thursday. Tyler’s Converse/Thrasher “Death Match” show at the Scoot Inn was nearly shut down after he implored a large gathering of fans who were standing outside the packed venue to break down the gates. The California MC eventually resumed his set and no injuries were reported. According to sources, Tyler was warned about the show and the arrest warrant and followed closely by the fuzz throughout the rest of his time at the festival.

The incident happened just a day after two people were killed and 23 others injured by a drunk driver during the rapper’s show on Wednesday.
