Travis Scott being sought by NYPD over alleged assault, property damage

by The Grio

A sound engineer at Manhattan’s Club Nebula accused Scott of punching him during a Don Toliver after-show party.

The New York Police Department is looking for Travis Scott over an early Wednesday incident at a Midtown nightclub. A man accused Scott of assaulting him and causing damage at the club.

The nine-time Grammy Award-nominated rapper allegedly punched a sound engineer at club Nebula following a verbal altercation, according to NBC News. Scott is also accused of damaging up to $12,000 of equipment at the Nebula before leaving the club.

Scott was at the club for an after-party of a Don Toliver concert. Toliver performed 25 blocks away at Irving Plaza earlier that evening and brought out Scott as a surprise guest during his show.

According to authorities, NYPD responded to a call at Nebula at 3:25 a.m. from a club sound engineer who said “he was involved in a verbal dispute with” Scott. During the dispute, NYPD said that the argument elevated “into a physical altercation. Travis Scott punched the victim with a closed fist on the left side of the face.”

Authorities are looking at Nebula’s surveillance footage for police investigation.

Scott’s spokesperson stated that the allegations result from a “misunderstanding” and that the reports against him are exaggerated. The spokesperson’s statement was on behalf of Scott, his lawyer, club management, and a talent booker who arranged the post-show party.

“While this is a misunderstanding being blown out of proportion by clickbait and misinformation, we are actively working with the venue and law enforcement to resolve and set the record straight,” according to a statement attributed to Mitchell Schuster, Scott’s lawyer. “We are confident our client will be cleared of any wrongdoing.”
