Travis Scott Pleads Guilty to Disorderly Conduct

Travis Scott pleads guilty to disorderly conduct nine months after the rapper was arrested for allegedly inciting a riot during a concert in Arkansas.

Scott, who was charged under his real name Jacques Webster, was arrested and initially charged with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct and endangering the welfare of a minor in May 2017 during his concert.

His attorney, Doug Norwood, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Norwood told the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that while Scott plead guilty his two misdemeanour charges were dismissed through plea negotiations in January. He said it’s likely the disorderly conduct charge could eventually be expunged from the rapper’s record.

The publication reported the rapper was required to pay $6,825.31 to two people who said they were injured at the concert, including $640 in court associated costs.

Keith Foster, a spokesman for the Rogers Police Department, told PEOPLE at the time that Scott had “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.”
