Odd Future Signing Almost Causes A Riot In Boston

Tyler, The Creator and co. egged on fans during an autograph signing for his new album "Goblin," putting a policeman in the hospital.

OFWGKTA leader Tyler, The Creator almost incited a riot yesterday while signing copies of his sophomore album Goblin. According to sources, the 20-year-old front man was posted up at the Newbury Comics on Newbury Street, firing up the crowd and forcing local authorities to swarm the scene.

Tyler and Odd Future members incited the fans by hyping them up on top of the establishment’s building. As attendees became “unruly,” Boston Police ended up arresting at least one person and an officer was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries. Fans inevitably dispersed and Odd Future continued on to perform at the Paradise Rock Club. 

Odd Future has recently had several run-ins with the police. Last month, police in Los Angeles pinched resident crooner Frank Ocean for unknown reasons, while Tyler was detained earlier this week in L.A. for disturbing the peace.
