Odd Future rapper, Tyler the Creator, didn’t get much Texas love when he was arrested for a Class A misdemeanor over the weekend in Austin. Tyler was arrested at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on Saturday for “inciting a riot”. During his show at SXSW titled “Death Match” Tyler encouraged people who were outside of the venue to rush the gates and get in. People started chanting “push, push” and hundreds of people charged. Officers say his actions “encouraged behavior causing an immediate danger and injury to persons”.  He was released on $25,000 bond and then performed a sold out show in Dallas the next day.
