Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner's boyfriend, has a sweet new baby girl. (Say hello to Stormi Webster!) But, in addition to anticipating tummy time and diaper-changing, the rapper recently had something else on his agenda: a court date. He pled guilty to disorderly conduct nine months after he was arrested in Arkansas.
To recap, in May of 2017, the 25-year-old — whose real name is Jacques Webster — was arrested. According to police, he had encouraged fans to rush the stage at his concert, resulting in a few injuries.
A representative told People: "During the concert, Webster encouraged people to rush the stage and bypass security protocols to ensure concert goer safety. During the rush to the stage several people were injured, including an employee from the security company hired to help monitor and control the crowd, and a member of the police department. The injured subjects were treated at the AMP by members of the Rogers Fire Department and Mercy Medical."
To be honest, this doesn't really sound like our kind of party. But, fans seemed to be more inspired than ever to see the rapper live in action. Many took to social media to comment on just how "lit" the show must have been.
Authorities weren't as impressed. At the time, he was charged with disorderly conduct, inciting a riot, and endangering the welfare of a minor.
Webster's attorney Doug Norwood later claimed: "They overcharged [Webster.] They tried to get him for inciting a riot. The video [from the concert] did not show any of that."
With Norwood's help and through plea negotiations in January, he was able to have two misdemeanor charges dismissed. And, Norwood has said that it's likely the disorderly conduct charges could be taken off the rapper's record, as well.
He is, however, reportedly on the hook to pay around $6,800 to two people who claim that they were injured at the event.
