Tyler, The Creator Arrested For Starting A Riot At SXSW [PHOTOS]
Tyler, The Creator was completely innocent when a drunk driver plowed through a crowd outside of his SXSW show, killing two people in the wee hours of Thursday, March 13.
But Austin, TX police are saying he is guilty as charged for inciting a riot during his showcase later that day.
Tyler the Creator was arrested Saturday afternoon at an airport in Texas … after cops say they had a warrant with his name on it — for starting a riot at the SXSW festival.
Austin PD officials say Tyler was booked this afternoon for inciting a riot at his concert Thursday.
Cops released a video of the riot (below) — and Tyler is clearly telling everyone to break down the barricade to get in. The scene is pretty scary.
According to the warrant … a bartender at the facility told police he tried protecting a woman from getting trampled on … but a guy punched him in the face for it.
Also, according to Spin, Tyler was telling his onlookers to “PUSH, PUSH, PUSH,” which they happily obliged. The end result resembled the Spanish Running of the Bulls.
He’s being held on paltry $3,500 bond. Hit the gallery to see pics of the struggle for yourself.
