Rogers, AR – Travis Scott’s lawyer has entered a not guilty plea for the rapper after Scott was arrested a week ago for allegedly inciting a riot at his Birds Eye View Tour stop in Rogers, Arkansas, according to the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
“Travis Scott had no criminal intent,” attorney Drew Ledbetter said. “He only intended to put on a good show.” Ledbetter also waived Scott’s arraignment hearing, scheduled for June 13, so Scott will not have to return to Rogers, which is just north of Little Rock.
The platinum-certified rapper, born Jacques Webster, is facing charges of inciting a riot, endangering a minor and disorderly conduct, all misdemeanors. At the show, concertgoers rushed the stage and several were injured, including a police officer and member of security. Authorities claim that the crowd was responding to an order made by Scott.
He spent 12 minutes in jail Saturday (May 13) before being released. Not about to miss a moment to capitalize, the Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight rapper made and sold T-shirts with his mug shot on them.
This is not the first time such an incident has occurred. Earlier on the Birds Eye View Tour
