Tyler, the Creator Arrested for Inciting a Riot at #SXSW (Video)


Tyler, the Creator, who real name is Tyler Gregory Okonma, was arrested at Austin-Bergstrom Airport in Texas allegedly starting a riot Thursday during the South by Southwest festival concert.

Tyler can obviously be heard in a video released by the cops yelling “just run in right now…do it, let’s go.” Concertgoers eventually broke down the barricade rushing in! It was pretty crazy scene.

Tyler, the Creator must have been a little salty since his show at SXSW got canceled the night before due to a drunk driver crashing into waiting concertgoers killing to 2 people and injuring 23.

According to TMZ, who obtained 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.

Okonma, who is being held on a $3,500 bond, faces up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
