UPI News Service, 05/15/2017
Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner's new boyfriend, was arrested for inciting a riot at his concert Saturday night in Arkansas, authorities said.
The rapper, 25, whose real name is Jacques Webster, "encouraged people to rush the stage and bypass the security protocols to ensure concertgoer safety," the Rogers Police Department told US magazine.
Scott was charged with inciting a riot, endangering the welfare of a minor and disorderly conduct after his performance at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion in Rogers, Ark. He was released without bail.
TMZ reported Scott's representatives said he was inviting people seated in the back to available space in the front.
Police said several people were injured as the crowd rushed to the stage, including a security guard and a member of the police department.
The injuries were treated at the scene by the Rogers Fire Department and Mercy Medical and no one was hospitalized.
Scott also was arrested during a 2015 performance at Lollapalooza in Chicago after encouraging fans to jump over security barricades during his set.
Scott recently made headlines when he celebrated his 25th birthday in New York with Jenner.
The reality television star was spotted presenting the "Goosebumps" singer with a cake and then later seen "sneaking in a passionate make-out" session.
