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.

To all those who commented Tyler sucks, he doesn't. He isn't the best, but he doesn't suck. Musically he is smart, that's if you listen to his interviews; instead of just sitting here critiquing his ****. Everyone tries to put OF down but their a good group. Especially better than whats out there now. At least their not always talking about getting money or *****. What they rap about is their personal experiences or they just joke around.
