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.

So sad that nowadays people can't rely on their talent only doing stupid, dangerous things for attention. Pity really.

I love how whites are being racist towards this guy because he's black. You all must be proud of Casey Anthony she's a real good example for society. Btw Tyler is a terrible rapper and very straight forward no filter along with arrogance.

So this guy "tells" people to break through the gates and gets arrested??? So if he "told" them to jump off a bridge would he be charged with murder??? Or what if he "told" them to rob a bank??? Would he be charged for robbery??? So stupid.

maybe he just got, um, caught up in the moment...but seriously what is this video of? it looks like a side door at universal studios. I just really don't understand. what are they pushing towards? where is everyone going? so this footage is from his concert Thursday? and it was cancelled due to a car wreck where people died and what? those white kids wanted to see Tyler the creator so bad they started a riot? that's hilarious.

I don't think it's his proudest moment. I don't think encouraging people to trample each other to get to you, while you are protected by security, is a responsible move and it lacks empathy in a way that would be disturbing if it didn't feel so lazy. It's not that he's not capable of caring, he's just too out of touch. And hanging around with Justin Beiber is sad.
