Fetty Wap was arrested overnight after cops caught him drag racing while intoxicated.
The “My Way” rapper was clocked going over 100 miles per hour in a 50 mph zone, apparently racing another car on a New York highway. According to TMZ, authorities pulled Fetty — who was riding in a 2015 Mercedes Benz — and suspected him of being intoxicated. They administered a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer, both of which the rapper failed.
According to the gossip website, Wap blew a .09, just over the legal limit for intoxication. If that wasn’t enough, Fetty handed over a New Jersey driver’s license that was expired.
Fetty was hit with 15 charges including reckless endangerment, drag racing, DUI, driving without a valid license, unsafe lane changing, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, following too close, and speeding.
He’s expected to bail out soon.
A Drama Filled Year
It’s been an up-and-down year for the former it rapper. After a string of huge hits, things have cooled down a bit for the New Jersey-repping artist, enough so that he felt the need to jump into the Mona Scott-verse on Love & Hip Hop. Since then, Fetty’s been making headlines more for his girlfriends and baby mamas than his singles.
The ongoing drama with the mother of one of his three kids made the news throughout the year after Fetty accused her of targeting him for money before their relationship started.
“I’m just going to say, she knew what she was doing,” he said in an interview with The Shade Room. “I wasn’t just no random dude in the club. She knew I was going to be there. That’s how that happened. We talked about certain s— that was supposed to happen. I guess she went around that s—. That’s how I knew it was all planned out.”
Masika Kalysha didn’t take kindly to that, going so far as to shame Wap by posting his pleading messages to her on social media. He wrote:
“I’m not asking you to take me back or forgive me, I just been sitting back watching how all these ppl been comin at u and how you stand tall. It’s so attractive n I sit back n just look at my daughter n that smile let me no it’s happiness there n I just know that I love you so that’s that. You have a good day.”
“I’m in your corner,” he added. “Don’t ever forget it, even if you don’t want to or just don’t believe it.”
Masika sarcastically captioned the photo: “My babby zaddy is soooo sweet y’all. Go leave hearts under his last pic because he takes up for me and defends me and he’s never lied on me ever.”
In spite of all this animosity, the pair did seem to get it together to celebrate their daughter turning one. Masika posted a string of positive photos to her Instagram showing mom, dad and baby all having a grand time.
“I think the thing she’ll remember when she’s older is me being there,” Fetty said of the event. “Daddy was there, mommy was there, f*** all the material s***.”
