The employee sustained minimal bruising and did not want to press charges, although he was informed that he is able to do so in the future. 

According to NewJersey.com, a woman slapped the employee first thinking he insulted her, before three others joined in the altercation. 

The fight was caught on tape, and police are still working to identify those involved. However, authorities need additional proof besides the victim’s account, footage from the store’s surveillance camera, and a witness’s cell phone video. “Maybe it looks like him,” said Paramus Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg of the footage. “We can’t go by, 'Uh, it looks like him.' We need more evidence than that.”

Fetty, whose birth name is Willie Maxwell II, is a native of Paterson, N.J. A request for comment from the 25-year-old rapper's camp was not returned.
