Tyler, The Creator AKA Tyler Gregory Okonma is no stranger to a bit of controversy. But when the American rapper was arrested on Saturday at a Texas airport for allegedly inciting a riot at the SXSW festival, he went “without incident,” according to Austin police.

Police say the whole affair began Thursday at a local entertainment venue when Okonma allegedly yelled at the crowd beyond the concert gates to push through. After hundreds of people swarmed into the already-full venue, a bartender was forced to protect one woman from the stampede, witnesses said.

Okonma has been charged with Riot-Class A Misdemeanor, and has a bond of $25,000.

It turns out there are some differences between Hayden Panettiere and her fiance Wladimir Klitschko, and we're not just talking about height.

The actress told the UK's Cosmopolitan in their April issue that "on paper, a relationship between the two of us looked crazy."

"From where we live to where we come from, the differences in our lives are fairly big," she said of her Ukrainian fiance. "On the surface, everything about us is unalike. But at our core, our morals and goals in life are very similar, so our differences become a lot less terrifying."
