Tyler the Creator

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.

The world is disgusting    

WOW! I'm pretty f-u-ckin disappointed in Tyler! I was a huge fan of his, until now. How could he be so irresponsible with human life?! PS I never knew he was a Bieber tool. Bye Tyler, I won't support a d9uche like you.

He's an idiot & should be in trouble. Use your freakin brain. He's lucky no one was seriously hurt or he'd have a heck of a lot of lawsuits! & the people that listened are just as stupid!

I can't stand this idiot. He tries too hard to try and be controversial. So edgy, hanging out with Justin Bieber. Clown.
