<p id=”par-2_48″>Just before 2 a.m. on June 20, police officers arrived at the Miami Beach Marina following reports of a disturbance on a yacht. Per <a target=”_blank” href=”https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/rapper-travis-scott-arrested-disorderly-intoxication-miami-dade-county-rcna158014″ rel=”noreferrer noopener”>NBC News</a>, officers found Scott “standing by the dock yelling at the vessel occupants.” Officers reported a strong smell of alcohol on Scott’s breath. </p>

<p id=”par-3_55″>The owners of the yacht did not want to press charges and after officers threatened him with arrest, Scott left the dock while “yelling obscenities to the occupants of the vessel.” He didn’t leave the marina for long, though. Within five minutes, officers spotted Scott walking back toward the yacht, where he began yelling again. </p>

<p id=”par-4_42″>According to the affidavit, Scott was “becoming erratic” and “disturbing the peace of the occupants of the marina and nearby residential buildings causing a public disturbance.” At this point, officers arrested him. Scott admitted he had been drinking, reportedly noting, “It’s Miami.” </p>

<p id=”par-5_25″>Scott bonded out of jail and left later Thursday morning. That same day, Scott posted “Lol” on X before posting about an upcoming tour date.</p>

<p id=”par-7_35″>In 2017, Scott was arrested on charges of <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/travis-scott-once-held-severely-crowded-concert-2017-that-left-fan-paralyzed.html/”>inciting a riot</a>, disorderly conduct, and endangering the welfare of a minor after encouraging the crowd at an Arkansas concert to rush the stage (per <a href=”https://apnews.com/general-news-celebrity-853726537b3a4849aa968ded4937ca40″ target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>AP News</a>).</p>

<p id=”par-8_41″>In 2021, Scott hosted his <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/travis-scott-speaks-first-time-astroworld-tragedy.html/”>Astroworld music festival</a> in Houston. During his performance, 10 concertgoers died and hundreds were injured as the result of crowd crush. Scott <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/travis-scott-ex-manager-saw-astroworld-tragedy-coming-says-scott-thinks-himself-sees-people-danger.html/”>continued to perform</a> even as people in the crowd shouted at him to stop.</p>

<p id=”par-9_16″>Attorneys representing the festival attendees filed lawsuits following the festival. Ultimately, though, Scott <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/investigation-into-travis-scotts-astroworld-festival-found.html/”>avoided criminal charges</a>.</p>

<p id=”par-10_94″>“In this instance, the grand jury of the 228th District Court of Harris County found that no crime did occur, that no single individual was criminally responsible,” District Attorney Kim Ogg announced, per <a target=”_blank” href=”https://www.cnn.com/2023/06/29/entertainment/astroworld-travis-scott” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>CNN</a>. “It is tragic that 10 innocent people were killed while trying to enjoy an evening of music and entertainment, something many of us do routinely and without a second thought to our safety. But a tragedy isn’t always a crime, and not every death is a homicide. This grand jury’s determination has no impact on the many civil lawsuits pending.”</p>
