Why was Fetty Wap arrested?
Speaking of his latest arrest, Fetty Wap was jailed after he waved a gun at an individual over a FaceTime call and threatened to kill him after the unknown person called the rapper a “rat” aka a snitch, as reported by TMZ. The call reportedly dates back to December 2021 but it is now that the cops obtained the video.
According to the New York Post, prosecutors from the Eastern District of New York stated that Fetty violated the conditions of his release with the threatening video call on December 11, 2021, which led to his arrest on Monday. The 31-year-old rapper is currently in custody and according to TMZ, the judge revoked his bond during a hearing. In the video obtained, Fetty Wap was seen threatening a man saying, “Imma kill you and everybody you with” again repeating, “I’m gonna kill you.” An FBI agent shed light on the case revealing, “This was a direct violation of both state law and the condition of his release”, as reported by the New York Post.
