Rock The Bells - Mountain View, CA - Day 1Odd Future frontman Tyler the Creator was arrested Saturday afternoon at Austin-Bergstrom Airport in Texas after allegedly instigating a riot amongst fans at SXSW.

Police officials obtained a video in which the rapper seems to be encouraging fans to push their way inside. Tyler was yelling, “just run in right now…do it, let’s go.” Fans gladly participated in the overzealous “game” of “Tyler says” and eventually busted through a gate to get inside the Scoot Inn.

If convicted, he will face up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine, according to the Sacramento Bee. Tyler is currently being held on a $3,500 bond.
