Travis Scott Grabs & Tosses Fan’s Phone Before Punching Sound Engineer



Travis Scott Grabs & Tosses Fan’s Phone Before Punching Sound Engineer

Travis Scott is under fire for yet another incident that unfolded just minutes before he allegedly punched a sound engineer in the face — this time, he’s accused of tossing a fan’s phone … and a lawsuit could be coming soon.

In video obtained by TMZ, you can see Travis behind the DJ booth at Nebula in NYC as he performed a surprise DJ set. Already agitated, it appears Travis doesn’t appreciate a man with a cell phone filming while he spins.

That’s when Travis snatches the phone — the video is murky at that point, but the phone’s owner tells us Travis tossed it — striking him in the head and cracking his screen.

The man tells us reps for Nebula offered his table a free bottle of booze for his troubles, but he turned it down. However, he tells us he’s lawyered up — with plans to file both a police report and civil lawsuit.

Scott was patronizing the nightclub when, per an NYPD statement, he allegedly became involved in a “verbal dispute” with a sound engineer. According to the statement obtained by the outlet, the rapper is also accused of escalating the exchange of words “into a physical altercation, and that he allegedly “punched the victim with a closed fist on the left side of the face.”

The “Sicko Mode” MC is also accused of destroying roughly $12,000 worth of equipment in the club, including a speaker and a video screen, during his alleged rampage, law enforcement told NBC News.

Scott’s lawyer Mitchell Schuster told TMZ that “this is clearly a misunderstanding being blown out of proportion,” adding, “we are actively working with the venue and law enforcement to resolve and set the record straight. We are confident our client will be cleared of any wrongdoing.”
