Tyler, The Creator Arrested For Starting A Riot At SXSW

Tyler+the+Creator 2013

Tyler, The Creator is known to stir up some trouble wherever he goes. Some find him entertaining, others find him obnoxious. Whatever your feelings may be for him, there’s no doubt that he can grab headlines. It appears that the Odd Future rapper got himself into a little bit of trouble this week at SXSW.

He was performing when the venue reached its maximum occupancy, so naturally, he encouraged his fans to storm the gate. He was arrested shortly after for a Riot-Class A Misdemeanor charge with a bond set at $25,000. You can view some clips of the incident along with Tyler’s awkward mugshot by taking a look below the jump.

He was able to finish his set, then was taken by Austin police. Lucky for Tyler, no one ended up getting hurt.
