Tyler, The Creator was arrested for allegedly inciting a riot during his show on Thursday at SXSW. Authorities are accusing Tyler of encouraging people to force their way into a venue that was already at full capacity. The incident took place at Scoot Inn, where he was headlining the Converse/Thrasher "Death Match" event. Tyler was actually inside a Texas airport Saturday afternoon when police officers apprehended him on a warrant. The Odd Future founder is currently being held on a $3,500 bond. Footage from Thursday's show has been released by police, and is available below.
On the same night as the alleged riot, fellow Odd Future member Hodgy Beats was filmed spitting at a woman. Of course, the night before, Tyler's set was cancelled due to the hit-and-run accident that left two people dead and 23 injured outside of the Mohawk.
UPDATE: After being charged with a class A misdemeanor, Tyler has been released on $25,000 bail. He has since gone on Twitter to ask people to stop correlating the incident he was arrested for with the hit-and-run incident from the previous night. He has also said that his show tonight in Dallas will go on.
