Fetty Wap was arrested by police Friday afternoon at Neward Liberty International Airport. Rolling Stone reports Police said they detained Fetty after he received a warning from the ankle monitor he was using that showed he had an extraordinary warrant in connection with a publicly disturbing accusation.
“Officers were dispatched to an ankle monitor call for an active warrant out of North Bergen, New Jersey,” a spokesperson for the Port Authority Police Department told Rolling Stone. “An active warrant was identified and the suspect was then transported to our [Central Police Desk], which is our main checkpoint for arrest processing.”
However, the details of the incident, which disturbed the public, have not been disclosed yet. The spokesperson announced that Fetty has since been released on bail.
The incident took place less than two months after Fetty was arrested in New York on a Federal Drug Charge. He had recently been detained at Citi Field as he prepared to perform at Rolling Loud. Federal accused Fetty of joining a large-scale drug trafficking ring and of conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances, including heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl.
“As alleged, the defendants transported, distributed and sold more than 100 kilograms of deadly and addictive drugs, including heroin and fentanyl, on Long Island, deliberately contributing to the opioid epidemic that has devastated our communities and taken too many lives,” Breon Peace, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said in a statement. “We will continue to work nonstop with our law enforcement partners to keep our neighborhoods safe from the scourge of dangerous drugs and gun violence.”
Fetty denied the charges in federal court and was released after paying $500,000 bail.
