Brooklyn drill rapper Fivio Foreign has been arrested for assault following an incident in Edgewater, New Jersey on Saturday (Oct. 10).
The New York artist was arrested on charges of simple assault/knowingly causing body injury, according to DJ Akademiks. The records show that he currently has not been granted bond and he is located at the Bergen County Jail.
The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
His arrest comes after Fivio has continued to gain popularity, becoming one of the many promising faces at the front of the Brooklyn drill scene.
Earlier this summer, the rising rapper sat down with DJ Vlad, who asked him about the arrest of several suspects, including two minors, over Pop Smoke’s murder.
I was tight. I was mad they got locked up. Now that we know who it came from… I don’t like them in jail.Fivio Foreign
The rapper revealed that Pop Smoke had been killed when he first saw reports — he didn’t believe it.
At first, I ain’t believe that sht. Fake news, first thing I said. Why niggas sharing this sht? I was getting a thousand calls and then I made a call … I didn’t even know Pop was in L.A. cause the day before that, he was in the studio with Polo G. Then the next day, I came to the studio to finish up the song with Polo G. I got the call and asked, ‘Is this sh*t real?'”Fivio Foreign
