According to 7 News Miami’s Sheldon Fox, Travis Scott was arrested after the rapper “was on a charter boat at the Miami Beach Marina. ‘He was drunk, causing a disturbance and asked to leave multiple times.’ Officers say when he refused to leave, he was arrested and taken to Miami-Dade Jail.”

Scott, whose legal name is Jacques Bermon Webster, was booked into Miami-Dade County Jail at 4:35 am EDT. Scott was released after paying bonds of $500 for a trespassing charge and $150 for disorderly intoxication.

The 33-year-old rapper shared a one word reaction on X / Twitter following first reports of his arrest:

Travis Scott is one of the leading artists in the hip-hop genre. Earlier this year the artist’s album “Utopia” was nominated at the Grammys for Best Rap Album, however the album lost to Killer Mike’s “Michael”.

Scott is expected to start the European tour for his show “Circus Maximus” in the Netherlands in 8 days. The tour is in support of Scott’s fourth studio album “Utopia”. It is expected to end on September 13th in Rio de Janeiro. 

This isn’t the first time the rapper has ran into legal troubles. Ten people were tragically killed and hundreds were injured during a crowd crush during the artist’s Astroworld festival in Houston on November 5th, 2021. After the incident, Kristian Paredes filed a lawsuit for $1,000,000 million due to the injuries he received. However, On June 29, 2023, a Texas grand jury declined to indict Travis Scott with charges. District Attorney Kim Ogg said:

“It is tragic that 10 innocent people were killed while trying to enjoy an evening of music and entertainment, something many of us do routinely and without a second thought to our safety. But a tragedy isn’t always a crime, and not every death is a homicide.”
