Travis Scott Arrested for Trespassing and Disorderly Intoxication in Miami-Dade County


Travis Scott was arrested in Miami-Dade County, Florida, early this morning (June 20), online records show. The rapper, born Jacques Bermon Webster II, was booked for trespassing on property after getting a warning, and disorderly intoxication. He posted his $650 bond and has been released from jail.

According to an arrest report, obtained by Pitchfork, police officers responded to a disturbance on a yacht docked at the Miami Beach Marina. Officers wrote that they saw Scott yelling at people on the yacht. They also said that they “could sense a strong smell of alcohol coming from [Scott’s] breath.”

Police officers said they spoke with Scott and a complainant, the latter of whom did not want to press charges against the rapper so long as he left the yacht. Scott complied, the officers wrote, but, as he departed, he “walked backwards yelling obscenities to the occupants of the vessel.”

Scott returned to the marina just five minutes after leaving the premises, the officers wrote, “disregarding officers commands to not go.” After speaking more with police officers, Scott “began yelling once again becoming erratic disturbing the peace of the occupants of the marina and nearby residential buildings causing a public disturbance,” according to the report.

Scott was subsequently taken to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and admitted to drinking alcohol, apparently saying, “It’s Miami.”

On X, Scott posted, “Lol.” In a statement shared with Pitchfork, Bradford M. Cohen, an attorney for Scott, said, “Mr. Scott was briefly detained due to a misunderstanding. There was absolutely no physical altercation involved, and we thank the authorities for working with us towards a swift and amicable resolution.”
