    A 52-year-old male told police that at 2 a.m., a "31-year-old male at a club became engaged in a verbal dispute with him, which escalated into a physical altercation where the individual punched a victim in the face." The alleged victim was a sound engineer at the club, other reports say.

    "The individual then damaged an audio speaker and video screen costing approximately $12,000 in equipment damage for the club. The individual fled the location in an unknown vehicle heading westbound on West 41st Street."

    An eyewitness told BuzzFeed that Travis had been DJ'ing for about 30 minutes when the alleged altercation happened. "The sound guy turned the monitor down, Travis walked over to him, got in his face, and started screaming. Tensions boiled over and they got in a shoving match," they explained, noting that a speaker and an LED screen were broken in the process, but nobody was seriously hurt.

    "Sound guy got the worst of it, and Travis walked away smiling and laughing. He was acting like he was in a mosh pit and got a bit carried away. It wasn’t the sound guy's fault. I think [Travis] was just gonna fuck with whoever was there last night. Little too much rage in that moment, but cooler heads prevailed and [Travis] DJ'ed for another 30 minutes before leaving," they added, claiming that Travis was "raging and wanted to fuck shit up."
