Though Travis Scott is probably riding high, following the birth of his daughter with Kylie Jenner, he had some legal issues to deal with this week.

According to TMZ, the rapper pleaded to guilty disorderly conduct for a 2017 incident in Arkansas, where he was arrested for inciting a riot. The charges, which included endangering the welfare of a minor, were thrown out as a result of a plea bargain his legal team reached with prosecutors.

Scott will have to pay some simple fines and the matter will be closed.

In May 2017, the rapper was thrown in jail for a total of 12 minutes, after an incident broke out in Rogers, Arkansas, during his "Birds Eye View Tour." Fans rushed the stage at Scott's request, resulting in a few people being injured.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened to Scott. Known for his wild stage presence, he was kicked off the stage and arrested for a similar incident at Lollapalooza in 2015, after encouraging fans to jump over security barricades. He ultimately pleaded guilty to reckless conduct and was handed a year of probation.
