MIDTOWN, Manhattan (PIX11) — Rapper Travis Scott was being sought by police Wednesday in connection to a Manhattan assault case, law enforcement sources told PIX11 News.

Scott, 31, allegedly punched a sound engineer in the face and caused about $12,000 worth of damage to equipment at Nebula, a nightclub on West 41st Street in Midtown, around 2 a.m., sources said. He is wanted on charges of assault and criminal mischief in the incident, according to sources.

Sources said the victim and Scott, whose birth name is Jacques Bermon Webster II, got into an argument before the rapper punched him in the face. The alleged victim went to Jersey City Medical Center Wednesday for treatment, per sources.

Scott then left the nightclub, hopped into a vehicle and took off in an unknown direction, sources said.

Scott’s attorney released the following statement about the incident.

“While this is clearly a misunderstanding being blown out of proportion by clickbait and misinformation, we are actively working with the venue and law enforcement to resolve and set the record straight,” said attorney Mitchell Schuster.

Scott previously faced legal trouble connected to a raucous 2021 performance at the Astroworld Festival in Houston, during which he continued to perform despite a massive crowd surge that killed 10 people and injured hundreds more.
