After inciting a riot at his Thursday SXSW show, Odd Future affiliate Tyler, The Creator was arrested at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport before he was able to board. The Austin Police Department had a warrant out for his arrest.
He has been charged with a Class A Misdemeanor. "Specifically, the subject encouraged a large crowd on more than one occasion to force themselves past venue employees controlling access at the venue which was already at full capacity."
"All you guys back there that can't get in," he said — then implored the mob to bust down the gates. There was a split second when it seemed like the crowd wasn't going to do it, a possibility Tyler extinguished as he led the audience in a chant of "PUSH, PUSH, PUSH!"
And just like that, hundreds of people came rushing through the gates.
His bond is set at $25,000.
