Travis Scott Pleads Guilty to Disorderly Conduct Days After Stormi’s Birth
How is Travis Scott celebrating the first week of being a father? By dealing with his May 2017 arrest! The 25-year-old pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after being arrested about nine months ago for allegedly causing a riot during a concert in Arkansas.
The rapper was arrested and initially charged with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct and endangering the welfare of a minor in last May during his concert, according to People.
Travis, whose real name is Jacques Webster, had the misdemeanor charges of inciting a riot and endangering the welfare of a minor dropped last month and his guilty plea is for the lowest charge.
“They overcharged him,” attorney Doug Norwood told the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. “They tried to get him for inciting a riot. The video did not show any of that.”
The musician’s lawyer also explained that it’s likely the disorderly conduct charge will eventually be expunged, or erased, from his record altogether.
Travis had to pay $640 in court fees and $6,825.31 to two people who claimed they were injured at the concert.
Norwood continued, “He felt bad about anyone being injured and was always willing to pay the restitution.”
Keith Foster, a spokesman for the Rogers Police Department, told People at the time that the arrest came after Travis “encouraged people to rush the stage and bypass security protocols to ensure concert goer safety.”
“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,” he continued. “The injured subjects were treated at the AMP by members of the Rogers Fire Department and Mercy Medical.”
TS was not required to go back to Arkansas to enter his guilty plea, which is good seeing as he has a baby who’s only a week old at the moment.
