Tyler The Creator Is Arrested For Inciting A Riot At SXSW!

Tyler the Creator has been arrested

Ugh! Just, why?!

Tyler the Creator was arrested at an airport in Texas on Saturday after he incited a riot at SXSW during his Thursday performance.

The cops had a warrant for the rapper, and according to Austin PD, he was arrested without incident. The charge was a Riot-Class A Misdemeanor and he’s being held on $3,500 bond.

What’s so ridiculous about Tyler doing this is that his concert was previously cancelled because of the driver who hit a crowd of people.

Austin PD added:

“Specifically, the subject encouraged a large crowd on more than one occasion to force themselves past venue employees controlling access at the venue which was already at full capacity.

Regardless of the size of a crowd, the encouragement of unruly and unlawful behavior is against the law and cannot be tolerated.”

Agreed! SXSW should be a place where people go to celebrate music and enjoy each other’s company. It should NOT be about riots.

    Tyler was only trying to include people, never was is it his intention to incite a riot. Sxsw has gotten way over-crowded and ridiculous to the point where fire-marshall's have been shutting events down and the previous incident was no way in relation to him. It sucks that media outlets are trying to paint him in a negative way when he's actually a really cool person.
