Earlier this summer, during Travis Scott’s performance at Lollapalooza, a stampede broke out and a 15-year-old girl was trampled. The impetus for the incident was Scott urging the crowd to jump the banisters, and rush the stage. Needless to say, all hell broke loose.
Scott was arrested after the melee, and the show was cancelled after just a mere 10 minutes into the event. On Tuesday, the rapper — real name Jacques Webster — showed up in court to plead guilty to inciting the riot. The plea to reckless conduct carries with it a sentence of one-year court supervision.
This isn’t the first time that violence or threats of violence have happened at Scott’s shows. In July, he urged the crowd to beat up an audience member after the man allegedly tried to steal his sneakers. Another incident in March resulted in Scott stomping a man. There’s no definitive word yet on whether the court’s judgment will have any impact on Travis Scott’s touring schedule.
