Rapper Fetty Wap charged with punching valet at Las Vegas hotel: reports
New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap was arrested Sunday morning after punching at least one person during an altercation in Las Vegas, according to multiple reports.
The hip-hop artist, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, struck an employee of a business on or near the popular Las Vegas Strip and was charged with three counts of battery, police told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Authorities did not release any details, but TMZ reported that the employee was a valet at the Mirage Hotel and Casino and that the one-eye celebrity also hit two other people during the early morning fight.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department did not immediately return requests for information on Monday afternoon.
The 28-year-old singer and songwriter, known for the 2015 hit “Trap Queen,” has made headlines for breaking the law at least once before.
In 2018, he admitted to drag-racing while drunk on a Brooklyn highway and was ordered to pay a fine and attend safe driving programs as part of a plea deal.
