Rapper and music producer Travis Scott was arrested May 3 after telling fans to rush the stage and go past security barriers, and several were injured when fans did so.

Scott, whose real name is Jacques Webster, was performing at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion in Benton County when he called for the audience to storm the stage. A security guard, police officer, and several others were injured in the melee, CBS News reported.

Scott, who is said to be dating Kylie Jenner, was arrested at the concert venue and was booked at 11:14 p.m. He was released just 12 minutes later without bail at 11:26 p.m., CBS affiliate KFSM reported.

Scott is facing charges including endangering a minor, disorderly conduct and inciting a riot.

The hashtag #FreeTravisScott was trending on social media Monday even though Scott didn’t spend time in jail.

Scott was previously arrested in 2015 for similar behavior at Lollapalooza in Chicago, and was filmed earlier in the month during a concert in New York City telling fans to jump off a balcony, EOnline reported. After the Chicago arrest, Scott was cited for disorderly conduct.

Twitter users mostly sympathized with Scott or tried to deny there was any kind of incident.
