Travis Scott‘s flash mob-type event on the streets of West Hollywood might cost him — because city officials are taking a closer look to see if he broke pandemic regulations.
L.A.’s Dept. of Public Works tells The Plug Up … the city did not issue a permit for Travis’ gathering Tuesday in WeHo, as we’re told the city’s been frowning on dishing ’em out lately due to COVID-19 — especially for non-essential gatherings like this.
In light of that, we’re told Public Works plans to consult with the City Attorney’s office on any possible actions they might wanna take — including potential fines. Public Works did note to us that even though they do issue citations for permitting violations … it wasn’t certain that would be done in this case.
As we reported … Travis assembled dozens of bodies at a newsstand, which he emblazoned with his Cactus Jack signage — all as a way to announce the 1st issue of his “Utopia Issue” of i-D Magazine. Limited editions were being distributed to the masses.
You’ll recall … Travis got dinged for something very similar not too long ago in the SoCal city of Downey, which only ended up costing a couple hundred bucks — and McDonald’s covered the tab for him.
That’s not to say L.A. will do the same — the City Council has been gunning to crack down on blatant COVID rule-breaking. Members recently voted to have cops step up enforcement, and for the City Attorney to potentially institute stiffer penalties for those who flout safety measures.
L.A. County Sherriff, Alex Villanueva, came out Wednesday and said there were no criminal charges forthcoming for Tiger — and he seemed pretty emphatic about it … almost like he wanted to end any speculation to the contrary.
As we reported, Woods was busted for DUI in 2017, where he clearly appeared impaired after failing a number of field sobriety tests, but that wasn’t the case this time.
Tiger’s focus now is recovery. The doctors and physical therapists we’ve spoken with all say the same thing … part of the recovery is physical, but 50% is mental … and Tiger has shown the fortitude with past injuries that he will reign victorious over broken bones.
