ROGERS, Ark. (CelebrityAccess) -- Houston rapper Travis Scott was arrested and charged with allegedly inciting a riot after a concert in Arkansas on Saturday.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Rogers police said that Scott, whose real name is Jacques Webster, encouraged people to rush the stage and ignore security rules while performing at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion.
