Travis Scott Reportedly Told Cops ‘It’s Miami’ Before Arrest

The “Sicko Mode” rapper was charged with disorderly intoxication and trespassing.

Travis Scott had a brief stay at Miami Dade County Jail after he was arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication and trespassing Thursday morning (June 20).

The “Sicko Mode” rapper, born Jacques Bermon Webster, was booked into jail at 4:35 a.m. and was later released on bond after paying a total of $650 on both charges, according to local reports.   

According to documents, shortly after 1 AM, authorities responded to a call that “people were fighting on the vessel.” There, they found the 33-year-old yelling at passengers on the ship. 

The officers “could sense a strong smell of alcohol coming from the defendant’s breath,” the report said. They led the star down a dock and toward a boardwalk while he walked backward and yelled obscenities.

The report stated that after the “FE!N” rapper got into a vehicle waiting for him, he started walking back to the yacht despite the officers’ warning to leave the premises. He was later arrested around 1:44 AM. A short time later, Scott confessed to having been drinking alcohol “and stated, ‘It’s Miami.’”

Bradford Cohen, the Grammy-nominated star's legal representative, released a statement denying claims that things turned violent before the arrest, stating, "Mr. Scott was briefly detained due to a misunderstanding."

He added, "There was absolutely no physical altercation involved, and we thank the authorities for working with us towards a swift and amicable resolution."

but he did post a doctored image of his mugshot, sporting sunglasses, and earphones, onto his Instagram Stories.
