After reportedly showing up half an hour late, rapper Travi$ Scott got his Lollapalooza set shut down after only 5 minutes by encouraging fans to jump the security barrier and rush the stage. Festival organizers deemed the resulting chaos to be unsafe and shut the whole thing down, with security forcibly removing Scott from the stage.

In a now-deleted tweet, Billboard claimed that at least one arrest has been made in relation to the incident.
UPDATE: As ABC 7 Chicago reports, Travi$ Scott was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. The Office of Emergency Management issued a statement saying, “The performer played one song and then began telling fans to come over the barricades. Due to the security’s quick response, the situation was remedied immediately and no fans were injured. The performer fled the scene and was taken into custody a short while later.”
