American rapper, Travis Scott has been arrested early on Thursday morning in Miami, facing charges of trespassing and disorderly intoxication, according to authorities.

The 33-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jacques Bermon Webster II, posted bonds of $500 and $150 for the respective charges. He was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center around 4:35 AM and is expected to be released later in the morning.

A Miami Beach police arrest affidavit, seen by DailyMail.com, states that Scott was involved in a disturbance on a yacht, which included fighting among individuals.

Officers found Scott near the dock, yelling at the occupants of the vessel. Despite being asked to sit down, he repeatedly stood up and ignored their commands.

Sergeant Lemus of the Miami police warned Scott to leave the dock or face arrest. The affidavit notes that Scott walked backward while yelling obscenities at the yacht occupants during the long walk to the boardwalk. After leaving, he returned five minutes later, causing another disturbance by yelling, becoming erratic, and disturbing the peace of the marina’s occupants and nearby residents.
