Travis Scott’s Case Gets Thrown Out
Just a few days after welcoming his first daughter to the world, Travis Scott’s luck hasn’t run out just yet.
According to a report from TMZ, the rapper’s case for inciting a riot has been dismissed since he struck a plea deal. A clerk at the Rogers District Court in Arkansas announced that Travis pleaded guilty to the charges of disorderly conduct, but the endangering the welfare of a minor and inciting a riot were both thrown out.
La Flame initially pleaded not guilty to the May incident. Police said that Travis, “encouraged people to rush the stage” at the Walmart Amphitheater, which is how the charges appeared. As a result of the rapper encouraging his crowd to be so energetic, a police officer, security guard, and a few others from the actual crowd were hurt.
Arguing his case, Scott’s lawyer Drew Ledbetter says, “Travis Scott had no criminal intent, he only intended to put on a good show.” Travis is known for his crazy stage show and insane crowds, so honestly, a case like this isn’t surprising. But for someone who performs live so often, you can probably bet that he didn’t want to incite a riot, he just wanted the kids to have fun.
