Rapper Travis Scott Arrested in Miami for Yacht Altercation, Disorderly Intoxication

Miami-Dade Corrections & Rehabilitation Department 
Travis Scott was arrested early Thursday on suspicion of disorderly intoxication and trespassing after an altercation on a boat.

The rapper, whose real name is Jacques Bermon Webster, was detained by police at Miami Beach Marina at around 1:45 a.m., according to official records.

The Miami Beach Police Department reported that officers were called to the marina following reports of people fighting on a yacht. When they arrived, they found the 33-year-old artist shouting at people on the vessel.

Officers stated that they could "sense a strong smell of alcohol" on Scott’s breath when they approached him. After instructing him to leave the dock, Scott complied but continued to shout obscenities at the occupants of the yacht while walking backwards.

Minutes later, Scott returned to the area and attempted to board the yacht again. When officers confronted him, he allegedly disregarded their commands and became "erratic," disturbing local residents.

Following his arrest, Scott admitted to having consumed alcohol, reportedly telling officers, "It's Miami." He was booked into Miami-Dade County Jail at 4:35 a.m. and later released on a $650 bond at 8 a.m., according to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.

The rapper took to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, after his release, simply posting, "Lol."

Scott, a 10-time Grammy Award nominee, is one of the biggest names in hip-hop. He was previously in a relationship with Kylie Jenner, with whom he shares two children.

His European tour is set to start in the Netherlands on June 28, with upcoming shows in London and Manchester.

In 2021, Scott faced widespread scrutiny after 10 fans died in a crowd surge at his Astroworld festival in Houston, Texas. While he did not face criminal charges over the deaths, he remains involved in civil cases alleging negligence by the festival organizers.
