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.

Thats what happens when you allow rap in a music festival. That element ruins everything good. hopefully next year they will realize that not only is rap not even music but the people who like it are not going to behave like human beings

oh well, do dumb **** you deserve to get arrested.
it's not like he is going to get a harsh punishment being a musician/celebrity.
if I were to get charged w/ the same crime I'd get put under the prison or have to serve probation for forever.
