Tyler the Creator Makes First Statement Since His Arrest + Video of Riot Released (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) This has not been the most stressless SXSW for the 23 year old Odd Future artist. Last night (March 15th), Tyler, the Creator made his first statements since his earlier arrest for inciting a riot in a manner all too familiar: Twitter.

Tyler was arrested at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas Saturday afternoon after allegedly inciting a riot at his headlining performance at Thrasher/Converse SXSW event on Thursday (March 14th). This event comes less than 24 hours after a drunk driver crashed into crowd of individuals waiting outside of The Mohawk where Tyler was to perform. On his personal Twitter account, Tyler stated, for the first time since his arrest, for him to be disassociated with the tragedy on Thursday morning:

TMZ obtained footage of the riot and clearly shows Tyler staring at the large group of people violently pushing into the event and yelling “PUSH!”

Check out the video of the riot released by the Austin Police Department:
