Houston rapper Travis Scott arrested after rowdy concert in Arkansas, police say

BENTON COUNTY, Ark. – Houston rapper Travis Scott was arrested Saturday night, police in Arkansas said.

Scott, whose real name is Jaques Webster, was arrested after his performance at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion, according to the Rogers Police Department.

During the concert, police said Webster encouraged people to rush the stage and bypass the security protocols to ensure concert goer safety.

During the rush to the stage, police said several people were injured, including an employee from the security company hired to help monitor and control the crowd, and a member of the police department.

It’s unclear how many people were hurt, but police said they were treated at a local hospital.

Webster was charged with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct, and endangering the welfare of a minor.

Webster is now at the Benton County Sheriff’s Office, police said.

When Travis was last seen in Houston, he made headlines after he sat next to Kylie Jenner courtside at a Houston Rockets playoff game at Toyota Center.
