ROGERS, Ark. (AP) — Rapper Travis Scott’s recent arrest after a concert in Arkansas is not his first on accusations of encouraging fans to join him on stage.
Police in Rogers say the Houston-born musician, whose real name is Jacques Webster, was arrested Saturday night on charges of inciting a riot, disorderly conduct and endangering the welfare of a minor.
Police say Webster encouraged fans to bypass security and rush the stage, leaving a security guard, a police officer and several others injured.
The Associated Press has sought comment from Webster’s representatives.
