The reasons behind Fetty Wap’s arrest
On FaceTime, Fetty Wap threatened to murder an anonymous person. According to court filings, the authorities discovered a video in which the artist made threats in December 2021.
He aimed a revolver at the person and shouted,
“I’m going to murder you and everyone you’re with.” “I’m going to murder you.”
He continued repeating the phrases throughout the conversation, violating the terms of his release on a $500,000 bail in November last year after being charged with having and distributing dangerous narcotics. Wap was arrested by the FBI on federal narcotics charges in October 2021 for delivering drugs in New York at Rolling Loud New York. He was one of six persons charged with similar offenses, including distributing more than 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of cocaine to traffickers in New Jersey and Long Island, New York.
The 31-year-old has already dealt with legal troubles. Several lawsuits have been brought against him for infringement of intellectual property, defamation, property damage, and assault. He was detained on a Brooklyn highway in November 2017 on suspicion of drunk driving, reckless endangerment, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, improperly changing lanes, and drag racing.
