HipHollywood can confirm that Travis Scott was taken into custody over the weekend after inciting a riot in Arkansas.

According to the Rogers Police Department, following Scott’s show at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion on Saturday, he was arrested after encouraging “people to rush the stage and bypass the security protocols to ensure concert goer safety.”

The department wrote in a statement that “during the rush to the stage 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.” 

The rapper was charged with Inciting a Riot, Disorderly Conduct, and Endangering the Welfare of a Minor.

Scott has not responded to the arrest, but it is no secret the rapper enjoys an active crowd. TS was also arrested in 2015 after Lollapalooza for telling fans to jump the barricades.

I personally know what it’s like to be right in the middle of Travis Scott pandemonium. During the first weekend of Coachella 2017, I was situated in the heart of an aggressive mosh pit during Travis’ show. When the rapper called for fans to get hype and jump around, I was not prepared for the elbows to the arm, back and face.

So here’s a little PSA … if you don’t want to get bumped around at a Scott concert, stay far away from the stage.



Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview



Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.
