Travis Scott arrested for ‘causing a disturbance while drunk and trespassing’

Travis Scott arrested for 'causing a disturbance while drunk and trespassing'

Rapper Travis Scott has been arrested for “disorderly intoxication and trespassing”, police in the US have said.

Scott, who has two children with Kylie Jenner, was arrested for causing a “disturbance” on a charter boat at the Miami Beach Marina, where he “was drunk, and asked to leave multiple times”, the Miami Beach Police Department said.

Officers were called to the marina at 12.44 am on Thursday morning to reports of a disturbance, according to official records.

The 10-time Grammy Award nominee was reportedly getting off a charter boat when the owner of the boat asked him to leave, 7News Miami said on its website.

The force said officers found Scott, arguably one of the biggest hip-hop acts in the world, “standing by the dock yelling at the vessel occupants”, and while he complied with their instructions to begin with, he then ignored them, NBC, Sky’s US partner, said.

Officers could sense “a strong smell of alcohol coming from the defendant’s breath”, records showed.

Though he agreed to leave the dock after being threatened with arrest, he did not go quietly.

As he walked to the boardwalk, Scott “walked backwards yelling obscenities to the occupants of the vessel”, police said.

He left the marina, but returned five minutes later and was seen by officers walking back toward the vessel.

Scott spoke to a sergeant he had spoken to earlier and began yelling once again – “becoming erratic” and “disturbing the peace of the occupants of the marina and nearby residential buildings causing a public disturbance”, court documents said.

The 33-year-old musician was arrested at 1.17am and booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center at 4.35 am on a charge of alleged disorderly intoxication as well as trespassing property after warning.

He submitted a $650 (£512) bond – $500 (£394) for the trespass charge and $150 (£118) for disorderly intoxication, the Daily Mail said.

Scott, real name Jacques Bermon Webster II, has achieved four number-one hits on the US charts and is known for his energetic live shows and successful albums, including Astroworld.

He has two children with the socialite and media personality, Kylie Jenner, but the pair are no longer together.

His European tour, titled Circus Maximus, is due to start in The Netherlands next Friday and he is scheduled to play Manchester’s Co-Op Live venue on 13 July.

In 2021, 10 fans died in a crowd surge at his Astroworld festival in Houston, Texas, where he was born.

He did not face criminal charges over their deaths but remains involved in civil cases alleging that organisers were at fault.

Last year he scored his first UK number one album with Utopia, which has been streamed more than 50 billion times globally, NME said.

Taylor Swift Eras Tour: Final UK shows at London’s Wembley Stadium ‘will boost economy by £300m’

Taylor Swift Eras Tour: Final UK shows at London's Wembley Stadium 'will boost economy by £300m'

The final UK shows of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour are expected to boost the economy by £300m, officials have claimed.

The US star will perform three gigs at London’s Wembley Stadium this Friday, Saturday and Sunday – before returning to the venue in August for a further five dates.

The sold-out shows will be attended by a total of nearly 640,000 people.

The Greater London Authority (GLA) estimates fans will spend an average of £471 per show, with many travelling from around the world or other parts of the country to watch.

The capital’s mayor Sadiq Khan said he was “delighted” the 34-year-old was playing more shows in the city than anywhere else in the world during her Eras Tour.

He said the gigs would be “a huge boost to our hospitality industry and [provide] further proof that London is the greatest city in the world to watch live music.”

It comes following the singer’s shows in Edinburgh, Liverpool and Cardiff this month.

Officials in London are keen to harness enthusiasm for Swift’s visit.

Transport for London has said it will rename some Tube stations in her honour, while Mr Khan has also unveiled a mural of the singer on the Spanish Steps outside Wembley Stadium.

The GLA said its economic estimate was based on research by tourism body UKInbound.

A previous study claimed Swift’s shows would have an even bigger impact – with Barclays predicting that fans would fork out a total of almost £1bn across her 15 UK shows.

UK leg of Eras tour kicks off

However, some commentators have questioned the claims.

George Moran, an economist at Japanese bank Nomura, expressed doubts over the alleged net benefit of the tour, saying he believed some fans would be cutting back on other spending in order to attend.

He told The Guardian last month: “We think the idea has been overhyped, especially for economies like the UK.”

Nonetheless, there appears little doubt that fans – some of whom have spent around £200 on tickets alone – will be spending big on accommodation, food and merchandise during the UK leg.

The multi-billion pound tour is also expected to be a major earner for Swift, who has an estimated net worth of more than $1.1bn (£0.9bn), according to Forbes.

The star has faced criticism for some spending, including her frequent use of private jets.

It comes amid a boom in concert tours worldwide – and their increasingly hefty economic impact.

Last year, officials in Sweden said two shows by singer Beyonce in Stockholm may have been responsible for a rise in inflation in the country.

Just Stop Oil protesters target private airfield ‘where Taylor Swift’s jet landed hours earlier’

Just Stop Oil protesters target private airfield 'where Taylor Swift's jet landed hours earlier'

Two people have been arrested after Just Stop Oil protesters painted several private jets orange at an airfield – where they claim Taylor Swift’s jet landed just hours before.

It’s not clear if Swift‘s jet was one of those that has been targeted by the eco-protesters, who said they are demanding an “emergency treaty” to end the use of fossil fuels by 2030.

In a statement, Stansted Airport said Essex Police had arrested two people and “as a precaution runway operations were suspended for a short period”.

“Shortly after 5am, Essex Police arrested two protesters who had entered the private aviation area of the airfield, away from the runway and main passenger terminal,” a spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said “no flights were disrupted, and the airport and flights are operating as normal”.

Essex Police said two planes were damaged and officers were on the scene “within minutes”.

Just Stop Oil posted videos on social media of them breaking into the private airfield at Stansted Airport, where they said the star’s jet was stationed.

Swift has three shows as part of her worldwide Eras Tour at Wembley Stadium in London on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, having performed in Cardiff this week – though it isn’t clear if her plane was one of those targeted.

The footage shows two protesters, named by the activists as Jennifer Kowalski and Cole Macdonald, cutting a hole in a fence and spraying orange paint over planes.

In a warning of further demonstrations, the group said areas of “key importance to the fossil fuel economy” will be targeted around the world this summer unless leaders “act to protect us”.

On Thursday morning’s incident, Just Stop Oil said: “At around 5am Jennifer Kowalski and Cole Macdonald entered the private airfield at Stansted airport where Swift’s jet is currently stationed.

“The pair painted two private jets using fire extinguishers filled with orange paint.”

Ms Maconald, 22, from Brighton, said in a statement shared by the group we are “living in two worlds” – one where billionaires live in luxury and another where “countless millions” endure “unliveable conditions”.

Sustainability manager from Dumbarton Ms Kowalski, 28, said we all “have to be considering what we can do each day to change the course our society is on”.

Essex Police confirmed two women, aged 22 and 28, have been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and interference with the use or operation of national infrastructure.

Chief Superintendent Simon Anslow said police presence will be “heightened” at the airport this summer and added the force is “not anti-protest” but will “always take action where criminal acts take place”.

“I would like to reassure passengers and the wider public that we are well prepared and resourced to deal with incidents of this nature,” he added.

“Almost immediately after we were made aware of this incident, which took place away from the main passenger terminal, we were on the scene.”

Yesterday Just Stop Oil sprayed orange paint on Stonehenge.

And there could yet be more incidents, as the group warned of “resistance” this summer if the government does not take “meaningful action”.

“Whilst governments are allowing oil corporations to run amok destroying our communities, the actions of individuals mean very little,” the group said.

“That’s why Just Stop Oil is demanding that our next government sign up to a legally binding treaty to phase out fossil fuels by 2030.

“Failure to defend the people they represent will mean Just Stop Oil supporters, along with citizens from Austria, Canada, Norway, the Netherlands and Switzerland will join in resistance this summer, if their own governments do not take meaningful action.”
