Scott is now facing widespread criticism for the deaths and has been accused of continuing his set, even as unconscious bodies were pulled from the crowd.
The 30-year-old performer has also been charged over music festivals in Arkansas in 2017 and in Chicago in 2015 for whipping up hysteria and encouraging moshing that left a guard and concertgoers injured.
Meanwhile, the FBI has joined the investigation into the deadly concert, according to KHOU.
“There’s a long list of entities that might be responsible for the tragedy that occurred Friday evening,” University of Houston Law Center Professor Meredith Duncan told KHOU.
Concert promoter Live Nation, the owners and operators of NRG Park, independent contractors at the event, and even Scott himself, could be targets of the criminal investigation, the outlet noted.
Possible charges could include reckless endangerment or even criminally negligent homicide, according to the report.
The annual festival, which was not held in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, first took place 2018, the year that Scott released his album “ASTROWORLD,” according to Fox News.
