Ten-time Grammy Award nominee Travis Scott has been arrested. 

The rapper was reportedly arrested in Miami Beach on Thursday for trespassing and disorderly intoxication.

According to BBC, police were alerted to reports of people fighting on a yacht in Miami Beach. 

They asked him to leave the dock. 

“Throughout the long walk from the vessel to the boardwalk, the defendant walked backwards yelling obscenities to the occupants of the vessel,” the affidavit reads, according to The Guardian's report.

The rapper, who is Kylie Jenner's ex, reportedly left but returned.

Scott reportedly left the dock but returned five minutes later and “began yelling once again, becoming erratic, disturbing the peace of the occupants of the marina and nearby residential buildings causing a public disturbance”, states The Guardian. 

The rapper reportedly admitted to drinking. 

His legal representatives say the rapper was arrested as a result of a misunderstanding. 

"Mr Scott was briefly detained due to a misunderstanding," his legal representative Bradford Cohen said in a statement on Thursday, reports BBC. 

Cohen denied reports that there was a physical altercation. 

"There was absolutely no physical altercation involved, and we thank the authorities for working with us towards a swift and amicable resolution," he stated. 

The Guardian reports that the rapper posted a bond of $500 and $150 for the two charges and was released the morning after his arrest.

The arrest comes ahead of Travis' European tour which is due to start in the Netherlands on 28 June.
