Travis Scott "only the intention of putting on a good show."

Rogers, AR – Travis Scott lawyer has entered a not guilty plea for the rapper after Scott was arrested a week ago for allegedly inciting a riot at his bird's-eye View Tour stop in Rogers, Arkansas, according to the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

"Travis Scott had no criminal intent," said attorney drew Ledbetter," he said. "He only intended to put on a good show." Ledbetter also waived Scott of the arraignment hearing, scheduled for June 13, so Scott didn't have to go back to Rogers, which is just north of Little Rock.

The platinum-certified rapper, born Jacques Webster, is facing charges of inciting a riot, endangering a minor and disorderly conduct, all misdemeanors. In the show, concert-goers rushed the stage and several were injured, including a police officer and members of security. The authorities say that the crowd was responding to a request made by Scott.

He spent 12 minutes in prison on Saturday (May 13) before being released. Do not miss a moment to capitalize, the Birds in the Trap of Singing McKnight, the rapper made and sold t-shirts with his picture on them.

This is not the first time that an incident has occurred. Earlier in the Birds eye View Tour in New York, the fans were jumping to the crowd from the second and third story balconies. In 2015, Scott pleaded guilty to reckless conduct to create chaos at Lollapalooza where he was only on stage for five minutes after that he encourages the fans to jump the barriers of security.

A show that was seemingly more soft was when Scott performs "goosebumps" a record 14 times directly in a recent performance in Oklahoma City.
