Fetty Wap Arrested for Allegedly Threatening to Kill Man on FaceTime Call After Labeling Him a ‘Rat’

According to federal investigators, rapper Fetty Wap was detained in New Jersey after allegedly threatening to kill someone and showing a pistol during a Facetime call.

The hip-hop singer, whose actual name is William Maxwell, was released on a personal recognizance bail of $500,000 following his arrest in October 2021 for allegedly conspiring with five others to traffic more than 100 kg of narcotics on Long Island.

After being arrested in the huge drug-trafficking case, he said he wasn’t guilty.

Prosecutors from the Eastern District of New York said that when the rapper made the threatening video call on December 11, 2021, he broke the terms of his release, which led to his arrest.

According to an affidavit filed in his case on Monday, the “Trap Queen” rapper branded a man named John Doe “a rat” and continuously threatened his life.

According to court filings, the Paterson, NJ native stated, “I’ll murder you and everyone you’re with.” Then he reiterated, “I’ll kill you.”

In the affidavit, an FBI agent said, “This was a clear violation of both state law and the terms of his release.”

Fetty Wap will have a hearing Monday afternoon in federal court in Central Islip, where prosecutors are likely to ask that he be locked up until his trial.
