Tyler the Creator, one of the Odd Future collective, was arrested Saturday night after a show at the South by Southwest festival for inciting a riot during his performance. He was arrested at the airport in Austin for the misdemeanor charge and released on bail shortly thereafter. The charge stems from Thursday night’s show when the rapper yelled for fans to push themselves past venue employees in a show that was at capacity. Tyler, and Odd Future, were denied a travel visa to New Zealand for an upcoming show due to past instances of violence at shows.
