Police: Tyler, The Creator, incited riot at SXSW

AUSTIN, Texas, (AP) - Tyler, The Creator, has been arrested for allegedly inciting a riot during the South By Southwest.

Police say the Odd Future rapper was arrested Saturday without incident and has been charged with riot, a misdemeanor in Texas.

His bond has been set at $3,500. Tyler's publicist did not immediately respond to messages Saturday.

Police say the 23-year-old Los Angeles resident incited a large crowd of fans at the annual music conference and festival to push their way past venue employees controlling access to an at-capacity show more than once during a Thursday performance.

Officers at the scene said in a warrant that Tyler yelled for fans to push their way inside twice, and that a bartender had to protect a woman from injury in the resulting push.

This is how people get trampled to death. Just look at the riots or chaos at soccer games and black Thursdays.

Yes, this so called " entertainer " ....yeah some piece of work allright. To incite his peers whom are of the same character to commit vandalism and force their way into the concert without paying and its only a misdeanor?
Then why bother this young man? That law is but peanuts to this maniac low lifed piece of work that only his type of peers need that corrupt " rapper " as fuel to their atrocious conduct. And that applies to ALL races who have a blatant disregard for the law and to demonstrate and teach others way younger to be corrupt and lawless.
Yes, this piece of work should never be allowed to " entertain " period. Thats clearly NOT entertainment.
Furthermore if he was smart he wouldn't of done such a dumb stuff instead he should of incited the need to get education because without that we ALL are nothing and can't get nowhere getting a job. One that can support a family and live normal as God intended and not show young people that its ok to go do bad like steal seats at your own concert.
