Rapper Travis Scott was arrested early Thursday in Miami after what authorities say was a drunken disturbance on a charter boat. The 33-year-old was reportedly arrested at 1:44am local time at the Miami Beach Marina and booked three hours later into Miami-Dade County Jail on charges of disorderly intoxication and trespassing after a warning. He complied with an initial request to leave the marina after a disturbance or dispute with a charter boat crew, but he then returned and became entangled with the crew a second time, CNN reports, adding he was finally arrested after refusing to leave.

Sources tell the Washington Post there was a "rowdy party" but no physical altercation involving Scott, whose real name is Jacques Bermon Webster. The rapper with 10 Grammy nominations was released from jail after posting $500 and $150 bonds, per Us Weekly. His only public comment since the arrest has been a brief "Lol" posted on X around 9am local time. (More Travis Scott stories.)
