    Rapper Travi$ Scott arrested at Lollapalooza
    CHICAGO -- Rapper Travi$ Scott was arrested Saturday afternoon after playing just one song at Lollapalooza, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

    CBS Chicago reports that the Texas rapper, who was born Jacques Webster, urged fans to come over the barricades after he played a song, said Office of Emergency Management spokeswoman Melissa Stratton.

    Security responded, and the rapper took off but he was later taken into custody, she said. The rapper and a fan have been charged with disorderly conduct, Stratton said. No one was hurt.

    On Friday, the first day of the music festival that takes over Grant Park, seven people were arrested, 43 were cited and 85 required emergency medical transport, Stratton said. She could not say what the arrests, citations and transports were for.

    A representative for the rapper could not be reached immediately.

    Video of the concert was posted by Prospect Sound (@prospect_sounds) on Twitter. The Twitter post said Scott played three songs.

    Lollapalooza organizers did not respond to emails from CBS Chicago.

    It seems like there arent even separate rock or rap music festivals anymore The powers that be (left) are insisting on diversity and throwing all the cultures and races together to watch the music.

    One of the many reasons I wish they would do away with this mess. Our beautiful city has plenty of other stuff to offer, we don't need this nightmare screwing things up every year. :mad:
