Travis Scott maintains his innocence.
According to the Democrat Gazette, the 25-year-old rapper has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a disturbance at his Birds Eye View concert in Arkansas. Travis allegedly encouraged audience members to get on the stage, which resulted in multiple injuries among the crowd. He was arrested following the show last Saturday for inciting a riot, disorderly conduct, and endangering the welfare of a minor—all misdemeanors.
Travis’ attorney Drew Ledbetter said he’s waived the Houston rapper’s arraignment and entered a not guilty plea to the charges.
“Travis Scott had no criminal intent,” Ledbetter said, as reported by the Democrat Gazette. "He only intended to put on a good show."
The “Goosebumps” artist was released on a citation from Benton County Jail shortly after he was booked. Following the arrest, Travis began selling limited edition T-shirts featuring the words “Free the Rage” as well as his mug shot taken that night. The design has since sold out.
This isn’t the first time Travis has been accused of inciting a crowd. In 2015, he was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct for telling Lollapalooza attendees to ignore security guards, jump the barricades, and rush the stage.
During a concert in NYC last month, Travis reportedly encouraged audience members to jump off the balcony at Terminal 5. One of the audience members was put in the hospital after he reportedly leaped from the third level.
