Travis Scott is capitalising on his arrest by selling t-shirts featuring his mugshot.

The 'Sicko Mode' hitmaker was arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication and trespassing on a property after a warning in the early hours of Thursday (20.06.24) morning and he's already using the situation for good with the new addition to the merchandise section of his website.

The 'Free the Rage Tee' is priced at $35 and features Travis' mugshot in the centre, with the phrase "It's Miami" written in quotes underneath.

The official police report stated this was something the 33-year-old rapper said to cops after his arrest.

A portion of proceeds from the tee will got to the Cactus Jack Foundation, which aims to "empower and enrich the lives of youth by providing access to education and creative resources to ensure long term success."

According to local news outlet WSVN, the 'Highest in the Room' hitmaker had been on a charter boat in the Miami Beach Marina when the vessel's owner caused police and asked that Travis leave between midnight and 1am.

A police spokesperson told the TV station: “He was drunk, causing a disturbance and asked to leave multiple times.

"[Travis] became irate, screaming profanities, left and returned to disturb some more.”

A police report obtained by TMZ explained cops responded to a fight on one of the boats, and when they arrived Travis was arguing with the occupants on one of the yachts, but the person who reported him asked the officers to remove him.

Police started to escort Travis away - allegedly while he yelled obscenities - and took him to his waiting car past the docks, but he then returned five minutes later and was intercepted as he attempted to head back to the boat.

At this point, the 'Antidote' rapper is said to have become erratic and belligerent, and so he was arrested.

Cops arrested Travis at 1.17am, half an hour after arriving at the scene, before officially booking him three hours later.

A lawyer for the star - who has children Stormi, six, and two-year-old Aire with former partner Kylie Jenner - said the arrest had been a "misunderstanding".

Attorney Bradford Cohen said in a statement: "Mr. Scott was briefly detained due to a misunderstanding.

"There was absolutely no physical altercation involved, and we thank the authorities for working with us towards a swift and amicable resolution."
