Tyler, The Creator arrested for SXSW incident


Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator was arrested in Texas March 15.

We won’t say the rapper was on the run trying to flee the state after a warrant was issued for his arrest, but that’s what it surely looks like.

Sources say the situation began when at a SXSW event earlier in the week the rapper instructed the crowd to break through barricades to get into the venue. Tyler also threw eggs at people during the show. These actions, according to police, started a riot.

A warrant was issued for his arrest and Tyler was arrested at an airport and charged with “causing an immediate danger and injury to persons.”

He is being held on a $3,500 bond.
