Tyler, the Creator Arrested for Allegedly Inciting a Riot at SXSW

It looks like Tyler, the Creator got fans a little too excited at his South by Southwest festival concert.

The Odd Future rapper, whose real name is Tyler Gregory Okonma, was busted Saturday afternoon at Austin-Bergstrom Airport in Texas for allegedly inciting a riot at the Thursday show, E! News has confirmed.

In a video police released from the concert, the hip-hopper appears to encourage fans to push their way inside, yelling, “just run in right now…do it, let’s go.” Concertgoers eventually busted through a gate to get inside Scoot Inn after that.

If convicted of the misdemeanor, Okonma, who is being held on a $3,500 bond, faces up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine, according to the Sacramento Bee.
