Fetty Wap was reportedly arrested for threatening to kill someone on Monday (August 8) after violating the conditions of his pre-trial release.
According to TMZ, Fetty – real name Willie Junior Maxwell II – was arrested in New Jersey by the FBI following a December 2021 FaceTime call where prosecutors claim he waved a gun and threatened to kill a man who called Fetty “a rat.”
Fetty allegedly pointed the gun at the camera and said, “Imma kill you and everybody you with” before repeating himself and telling the man directly, “I’m gonna kill you!”
Officials say Fetty’s possession of the firearm violated the conditions put in place when the rapper was released from custody on a $500K bond following his arrest in October 2021 on drug trafficking charges. Authorities labeled Fetty as the alleged “kilogram-level redistributor for the trafficking organization.” Two people named in the case have accepted guilty pleas, with one facing 10 years in prison and the other five.
Magistrate Judge Steven Locke revoked Fetty’s $500,000 bond and sent him back to jail, where he will wait to start his trial in Central Islip Federal Court.
