Rapper Travis Scott has been charged with disorderly intoxication after being arrested in Miami Beach

Miami – Rapper Travis Scott was arrested Thursday in Miami Beach and charged with disorderly conduct and trespassing.

The “Goosebumps” singer, whose real name is Jacques Webster, was taken into custody at a Miami Beach marina just before 2 a.m., police said.

Officers were called to the marina after a disturbance on one of the boats. When they arrived, Scott was standing by the dock yelling at the people on board.

When officers asked him to sit down, Scott did so briefly and then stood up again. He then “began to continue backing away from officers’ commands,” according to the arrest form.

Officers noticed an odor of alcohol on Scott’s breath.

According to police, the man on the boat who called them said he didn’t want to press charges and wanted Scott off his boat. Scott was then told to leave or he would be arrested.

“Throughout the long walk from the ship to the boardwalk, the defendant walked backward yelling obscenities at those on board,” the report states.

Scott then got into a waiting car and left. About five minutes later, he returned and began walking toward the boat, police say.

Scott reportedly ignored officers’ commands to stop. When one of the officers stopped him, Scott was acting erratically and began yelling again, “disturbing the peace of the residents of the marina and nearby residential buildings,” according to the report.

A case was registered against him and he was taken into custody and interrogated. He has since come out of jail.
