Rapper Travis Scott arrested in Miami

Travis Scott has been arrested in Miami on suspicion of disorderly intoxication and trespassing.

The rapper was booked into custody at 04:35 local time, according to official records.

An entry on the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department’s website says the 33-year-old was detained under his real name, Jacques Bermon Webster.

Local news station WSNV-7 reported that the arrest was linked to a disturbance on a charter boat at Miami Beach Marina.

BBC Newsbeat has contacted Miami Beach Police Department for further information.

Travis Scott is a Grammy Award nominee and arguably one of the biggest hip-hop acts in the world.

In 2021, 10 fans died in a crowd surge at his Astroworld festival in Houston, Texas.

He did not face criminal charges over their deaths but remains involved in civil cases alleging that organisers were at fault.

Last year he scored his first UK number one album with Utopia, which was released a week after a planned show in front of Egypt’s pyramids was cancelled.

His European tour is due to start in the Netherlands on 28 June, with a show scheduled in London and at the CO-Op Live venue in Manchester on 13 July.
