Travis Scott’s off the hook on charges of inciting a riot at a 2017 concert in Arkansas. The new father, whose girlfriend Kylie Jenner recently gave birth to their first child,put an end to the case by agreeing to a plea deal with prosecutors, according to TMZ.
Scott pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct as part of the deal. Charges of endangering the welfare of a minor and inciting a riot were thrown out, according to a clerk at the Rogers District Court in Arkansas. All three charges were misdemeanors.
In May 2017, Scott spent 12 minutes in jail after chaos erupted at his Birds Eye View Tour show in Rogers, Arkansas. Fans in attendance rushed the stage, at the behest of Scott, which resulted in several people getting injured. A member of the security staff and a police officer were among those who got hurt.
Scott found himself in a similar circumstance in 2015 at the Lollapalooza Festival. He was arrested after telling fans to jump over security parades and eventually pleaded guilty to charges of reckless conduct.
