Rapper Travis Scott pleads guilty to disorderly conduct

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A rapper who was arrested following a concert in northwest Arkansas last year has entered a plea of guilty to disorderly conduct.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Travis Scott entered the plea as part of a plea agreement in which misdemeanor charges of inciting a riot and endangering the welfare of a minor were dismissed. Scott's attorney, Doug Norwood, says the case was resolved last month.

Scott, whose real name is Jacques Webster, was arrested following a concert in Rogers on May 13. The Rogers Police Department claimed that Scott "encouraged people to rush the stage" during his show, but Norwood says video of the concert did not reflect the claim and that authorities overcharged the rapper.

Norwood says he believes the charge can be expunged from Scott's record.
