Rapper Webbie sparked riots after he failed to show up for his planned gig in Texas on Saturday (20Nov10) - one fan was arrested and two police officers were injured during the chaos.
The hip-hop star was scheduled to take to the stage at The Ranch venue in Waco but he never arrived for the show, leaving fans fuming.
The city's entire police department was called to control the crowds after reports of fighting and gunfire, and the incident resulted in one officer sustaining a broken rib and another spraining his wrist.
A 20-year-old man was charged with assault and resisting arrest following the night's drama, according to AllHipHop.com.
Reports suggest Webbie - real name Webster Gradney Jr. - had suffered a seizure prior to the concert and has since offered to return to Waco at a later date to put on another concert.
It's not the first time Webbie's gigs have been linked to trouble - in 2008, a woman was left in a critical condition after being fatally shot in the head as she left the rapper's gig in Thibodaux, Louisiana. The same year (08), a man was admitted to hospital suffering from stab wounds sustained at a Webbie show in Florida.
