On Wednesday morning in Manhattan’s nightclub, Afro-pop star Travis Scott is wanted for questioning after allegedly throwing away equipment worth $12,000 by kicking an engineer working on sound.
According to a spokesperson from the New York City Police Dept., officers from Midtown Precinct South responded to Club Nebula’s call at 3:25 a.m. The engineer from the sound department reported that Scott and they had been “engaged in verbal disagreement” which escalated into a physical confrontation.
Scott was scheduled to perform as a guest DJ at an after-party party following Don Toliver’s Irving Plaza concert when things turned ugly. According to NYPD, Scott is accused of punching a 52-year-old engineer in the face. Luckily, no injuries were seen and neither party sought medical help immediately upon being attacked.
The rapper, 31 who has yet to be charged, is accused of causing damage to both an audio speaker and video screen at a club before leaving, amounting to around $12,000 worth of damages.
NYPD is still searching for Scott to question him regarding an assault charge and criminal misconduct allegations, according to police sources. The investigation into these matters is still ongoing.
Vadym Petrov, the promoter of Legends of the Night, told The Times Wednesday in an email response to a question via Instagram that their security had asked us not to record. “It all happened very quickly,” he continued, emphasizing how quickly security had requested us not to record.”
Petrov noted that Scott left the club shortly after being involved in an altercation. Although he wasn’t present to witness everything, he could tell Scott was clearly upset with the sound man. To prove it, Petrov posted both Instagram articles and stories featuring Scott at the event sitting behind a DJ booth; alongside them was written: “Last night before @travisscott got wild.”

On Wednesday, Scott’s representative Ted Anastasiou issued a statement to The Times in which Club Nebula managing partner Ritchie Romero declared: “This has been completely exaggerated.”
Dorian Harrington, the talent booker who booked Toliver to host his party after the event at Club Nebula, was present on stage along with Scott as he performed a surprise set from his DJ. “This is an absolute misunderstanding,” Anastasiou stated in her separate statement to The Times. “What I saw up close onstage doesn’t match what’s being reported in the media. Everyone left satisfied and contented.”
Mitchell Schuster, the attorney representing Scott, maintains that there was an accidental miscommunication.
“While this misunderstanding has been exaggerated by clickbait and misinformation, we are actively working with the venue and law enforcement to resolve and set the record straight,” Schuster stated in a statement released by Anastasiou. “We are confident our client will be cleared of any wrongdoing.”
Scott, no stranger to controversy, will headline his own Rolling Loud festival in Inglewood this weekend. This will be his first in-person performance since the Astroworld concert that tragically resulted in the deaths of 10 people during a mass shooting at that event in November 2021.
