New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine had a rude welcome after touching down in the United States this week. New reports claim law enforcement arrested the “King of New York” following a European trip.
According to reports, cops nabbed 6ix9ine in New York City today (July 11) on an arrest warrant.
6ix9ine is legitimately behind bars after being arrested on an outstanding warrant when his plane landed back in the states. The Blast has confirmed the hip-hop star is currently in custody after he was arrested Wednesday when he arrived at JFK Airport. We’re told Tekashi69 was taken into custody over the misdemeanor assault warrant out of Houston, where he was wanted for allegedly choking a 16-year-old boy. NYPD tells us the “Gotti” rapper will be held in NYC lockup until Texas officials come and take him, and that he will not be extradited across the country. (The Blast)
Earlier this year, buzz developed over Tek allegedly choking a teenage fan.
In early July, Tek linked up with Taylor Gang leader Wiz Khalifa.
A few weeks ago, New York rapper 50 Cent playfully trolled Tek for getting caught running in his underwear.
