Tyler the Creator Arrested for Allegedly Instigating Riot at SXSW
Police officials obtained a video in which the rapper seems to be encouraging fans to push their way inside. Tyler was yelling, “just run in right now…do it, let’s go.” Fans gladly participated in the overzealous “game” of “Tyler says” and eventually busted through a gate to get inside the Scoot Inn.
If convicted, he will face up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine, according to the Sacramento Bee. Tyler is currently being held on a $3,500 bond.
Stay tuned for updates on this story.
