AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Rapper Tyler, the Creator, played a sold-out show in Dallas just hours after being released from jail in connection with a misdemeanor charge of inciting a riot.

The Odd Future rapper was arrested Saturday at the Austin-Bergstrom Airport for allegedly inciting a riot Thursday at a show during the South By Southwest music festival.

Police say the 23-year-old Los Angeles resident incited a large crowd of fans to push their way past venue employees controlling access to a Thursday unofficial day party that was already at full capacity.

Tyler was released Saturday after securing a $25,000 bond and played a sold-out show at the House of Blues in Dallas. The rapper's publicist declined to comment about the arrest.
