Travis Scott Pleads Not Guilty to Inciting a Riot, Launches T-Shirt Line With His Mugshot
Travis Scott, through his attorney, has pleaded not guilty for inciting a riot at his concert in Rogers, Ark., last weekend.
If you recall, Scott whipped the crowd in a frenzy while performing his fan-favorite track, “Goosebumps.” After the show, police swiftly arrested him and charged him with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct and endangering the welfare of a minor, reports arkansasonline.com.
The Rogers Police Department is accusing Scott of encouraging people to rush the stage. Multiple people were reportedly injured, including a concert security employee and a police officer. The injured people were treated at the scene, Arkansas police said.
Scott’s attorney, Drew Ledbetter, entered a plea of innocent to the charges and all misdemeanors. Ledbetter maintains that Scott wasn’t trying to cause a riot at his concert.
“Travis Scott had no criminal intent,” he said. “He only intended to put on a good show.”
Scott’s next scheduled court appearance is set for June 13. Prosecutors had no comment on the ongoing case.
