AceShowbiz - Travis Scott (II) pled guilty to reckless conduct charge after he started a stampede at Lollapalooza music festival this summer, The Associated Press reported. A judge ruled on Tuesday, December 22 that the 23-year-old rapper has to be under court supervision for one year.

During his stage performance at Lollapalooza back in August, the "Antidote" rapper encouraged the crowd to jump the barricade. Due to the stampede, a 15-year-old girl was trampled. Travis' music was then cut. He was stopped abruptly by people who appeared to be police as well as the festival's security team.

At that time, the Office of Emergency Management released a statement to Billboard, "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."

The company behind Lollapalooza, C3 Presents, said in a statement, "Fans jumped the barricade into the security pit at Lollapalooza during Travis Scott's performance on Saturday. The situation was resolved quickly and no patrons were injured. Operations have resumed as normal. Chicago Police are handling the matter."
