Police Searching for Travis Scott After Alleged Nightclub Altercation
Police say they are hoping to chat with Travis Scott after he was allegedly involved with a nightclub altercation.
Officers from the New York City Police Department responded to Club Nebula at about 3:25 a.m. March 1 after a sound engineer said “he was involved in a verbal dispute with” the rapper, according to a department statement obtained by NBC News.
The statement says the rapper was accused of escalating the dispute “into a physical altercation” before he allegedly “punched the victim with a closed fist on the left side of the face.”
Travis was also accused of causing about $12,000 worth of damage to a speaker and a video screen before fleeing the scene, police said.
E! News has reached out to Travis’ rep and Club Nebula for comment and hasn’t heard back.
A spokesperson for the NYPD confirmed to E! News a 52-year-old man was punched in the face and $12,000 in supplies were damaged. The spokesperson wouldn’t identify the assailant or the alleged victim by name, but said no medical assistance was required.
