Tyler the Creator
was arrested Saturday afternoon at an airport in Texas ... after cops say they had a warrant with his name on it -- for starting a riot at the SXSW festival.

Austin PD officials say Tyler was booked this afternoon for inciting a riot at his concert Thursday.

0315-tyler-the-creator-arrested-02Cops released a video of the riot (below) -- and Tyler is clearly telling everyone to break down the barricade to get in.  The scene is pretty scary.

As you may recall, Tyler's concert was cancelled the night before -- after a driver plowed into a crowd of people waiting to get in -- leaving 2 dead and 23 injured.

According to the warrant ... a bartender at the facility told police he tried protecting a woman from getting trampled on ... but a guy punched him in the face for it.

Tyler's still in custody on a $3,500 bond.

If true about his actions, he belongs in jail. What an irresponsible thing to do to stir up a crowd like that.

Everyone that hanged out with Beiber is marked for a criminal future. Za, Mayweather, Chris Brown, and eventually Selena Gomez will get a DUI.

Should Tyler really be in trouble for this? You can tell somebody to do something but its really up to them if they'll actually do it.
