Travis Scott was arrested in Miami on June 20, 2024, on charges of disorderly intoxication and trespassing. The rapper was transported to the Turner Guilford Correctional Center, where he was held on a bond of $650. However, as per the latest updates, Travis Scott is back home.

As per reports, the police officers were called to the Miami Beach Marina at 12.44 am when Travis Scott was allegedly coming out of a charter boat. When the boat owner told him to leave, the record producer reportedly got angry and started to yell profanities.

"He was drunk, causing a disturbance and asked to leave multiple times," a police representative told WSVN.

The Houston, Texas native's mugshot went viral on social media after his arrest.

A few hours later, the 33-year-old seemingly responded to the reports of his arrest through his official page on X and wrote, “LOL.” The comments section was flooded with various responses, with one of them writing:

“We are with you Travis!!”

Another person shared his mugshot, questioning if it was true. However, Travis Scott has not replied to the comment yet. On the other hand, sources for The Mirror said in a statement that Scott was not involved in any kind of physical altercation.

“This was a rowdy party and Travis was already bailed out for a few hundred dollars. He is already home,” the sources told The Mirror.

The sources continued claiming that no action would be taken against Scott, adding that “it was a minor incident akin to receiving a ticket with no injuries.”

Travis Scott was trending online after he was reportedly involved in a dispute with model Alexander "A.E." Edwards at "The After" party by Richie Akiva during the Cannes Festival. While speaking to Entertainment Tonight, an eyewitness revealed the circumstances leading to the alleged altercation on May 23, 2024.

The anonymous person stated that Tyga, who was also a guest of the event, was called on stage by Richie along with Alexander Edwards. The eyewitness continued to elaborate by saying:

"Right after the announcement, Travis immediately snatched the mic out of Richie's hand, and said, 'No, we're not doing this.' Alexander said, 'Let him how love.'"

However, Scott reportedly exited the stage and later confronted Alexander "A.E." Edwards, which resulted in a dispute. Scott was accompanied by rapper Southside, who first pushed Edwards. Scott then pushed Edwards again.

Edwards dragged Scott and threw him off the stage. Things eventually took a worse turn, and Alexander jumped on top of Scott, leading to a big fight. The dispute was broken after the security officers stepped in, and both the artists walked towards their respective cars.
