Not Again! Fetty Wap’s Bail Revoked For Allegedly Threatening Behavior On A FaceTime Call

The rapper was arrested after somebody sent a recording of the call to the FBI.

Rapper Fetty Wap was arrested and thrown in jail on Monday, (August 8) for violating the conditions of his bail and pretrial release. The 30-year-old was out on a $500,000 bond from drug trafficking charges involving a crew of five other individuals accused of having 100 kilograms of heroin and fentanyl  with the intent to sell out of Long Island. Fetty contends his innocence in that case, but now he has a new set of problems to tackle.

The New York Post is reporting that Fetty allegedly threatened to kill someone on FaceTime during a call on December 11, 2021 and even flashed a gun to make his point known. He was arrested by federal agents citing that doing so was a clear violation of the terms of his release.

According to an affidavit filed in his case, the caller, known only as “John Doe,” had his life threatened by Fetty who said, “Imma kill you and everybody you with you.”

Fetty, whose real name is Willie Junior Maxwell II, now sits in a Long Island, NY jail until his trial date in the drug trafficking case comes up. His lawyer says her client was triggered by a man who posted a photo of the rapper’s now deceased 4-year-old daughter with a caption that read, “I”m happy she’s dead because her father is a rat.”

“He was very manipulative in trying to get a rise out of Mr. Maxwell, to agitate him in a way no parent would have to face…the death of one’s 4-year-old daughter is something no one should use as a ploy,” his attorney Elizabeth Macedonio told the judge in court.

Fetty mourns the death of his daughter, Lauren, who died suddenly in July 2021 from complications caused by congenital heart arrhythmia.
