Travis Scott is accused of punching a man in the face and damaging equipment to the cost of $12,000.
Apparently, the “Sicko Mode” rapper and a sound engineer got into a verbal argument that escalated into a physical confrontation early on Wednesday at Nebula in Midtown. Before leaving the nightclub in an unidentified car, Scott is also accused of damaging a video screen and speaker.
At the time of the incident, the alleged victim made no complaints of pain or showed any outward signs of being hurt. Scott has not been detained in relation to the alleged event, according to what we’ve discovered, only a complaint has been filed.

Early in the morning, Scott performed alongside Don Toliver, who has a regular gig at Club Nebula. Videos show the duo entertaining a large crowd. According to police sources quoted by The New York Post, he also allegedly damaged a speaker and a video screen while punching a sound engineer in the face.
The father of two children with ex-wife Kylie Jenner, Scott has been involved in a number of legal disputes in the past. In February 2018, he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct related to an incident at an Arkansas concert the year before. In May 2017, the rapper was accused of inciting a riot and entered a not-guilty plea.
It’s now unclear if the probe will have any bearing on Travis’ scheduled appearance as the headlining Rolling Loud California is on Saturday night in Los Angeles. No further information was offered by the NYPD. Nebula has not yet responded to requests for comment.
