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.
