Travis Scott’s Lawyer Releases A Statement After Rapper’s Arrest In Miami For Disorderly Intoxication

Travis Scott’s lawyer has finally decided to spill the beans on the rapper’s recent Florida adventure, where he got an exclusive tour of the local jail for charges of disorderly intoxication and trespassing. And by “tour,” I mean he got arrested.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Scott’s legal eagle said, “Mr. Scott was briefly detained due to a misunderstanding.” Translation: He might have thought he was at a concert, but it turns out, yachts don’t come with backstage passes.

“There was absolutely no physical altercation involved,” the lawyer insisted, while probably crossing his fingers behind his back. “We thank the authorities for working with us towards a swift and amicable resolution.” In other words, they had a quick chat, shook hands, and called it a day.

A sneaky source, who clearly missed their calling as a gossip columnist, told the outlet, “There was no physical altercation with anyone.” Yeah, we got it. Travis wasn’t trying out his wrestling moves on the yacht crew.

“This was just a rowdy party,” the insider continued, painting a picture of a typical Tuesday night for Scott. “He’s already bailed out for a few hundred dollars. He’s back home, probably still trying to figure out why his hotel room didn’t come with a yacht.”

The source also assured everyone, “There will be no further action taken. It was a minor incident, like getting a ticket, but without the fun of speeding.” So, breathe easy, Travis fans—he’s not going to be making license plates anytime soon.

Earlier, the Miami Beach Police Department confirmed to PEOPLE that Scott “was taken into custody after an incident at the Miami Beach Marina.” Bet that’s not on the travel brochures.

According to an arrest affidavit, officers were called to the scene because, surprise surprise, there was some fighting going down on a yacht. Nothing says “party” like a little scuffle on the high seas.

“Officers made contact with [Scott] to conduct an investigation,” the affidavit read, which is cop talk for “they had a little chat with him.”

It also mentioned, “Throughout the interaction, officers on scene could sense a strong smell of alcohol coming from the defendant’s breath.” Clearly, Travis was indulging in Miami’s finest cocktails.

Scott ended up forking over a total of $650 for the disorderly intoxication charge and $150 for the trespassing charge. That’s the price of a pretty fancy dinner, but hey, you gotta pay for those yacht parties somehow.

Meanwhile, Miami police noted that after his arrest, Scott “admitted he had been drinking alcohol and stated, ‘It’s Miami.’” Because apparently, that’s all the explanation you need in the Magic City.
