Travi$ Scott’s Lollapalooza set was cut short after a near riot, and to make matters worse — the “Rodeo” rapper was arrested.
According to the Associated Press, the Houston rapper — born Jacques Webster — was arrested Saturday evening on the second day of the three-day music festival in downtown Chicago. He was arrested & charged with disorderly conduct charges after encouraging fans to jump over security barricades during his performance.
Scott performed one song before telling fans to plow through the barricades. After things got out of hand, he tried to diffuse the situation. “They gon’ stop the show if ya’ll don’t get down,” he told fans who bum rushed the stage.
The incident was quickly handled and no one was injured. But festival security was not feeling the whole situation, and when Scott fled the scene, he somehow ended up being apprehended by police.

This isn’t Travi$ Scott’s first mishap while performing on stage. During Hot 97’s Summer Jam Music Festival, Travi$ also got into an argument with a cameraman on stage. Maybe this arrest will teach Travi$ to just perform his music, and leave the stage without making such chaos every time.
