Tekashi69 Arrested in NYC for Attacking 16-Year-Old in Mall

Tekashi69 has been arrested in New York at JFK Airport as he was returning from his European tour.

A warrant was out for his arrest after an incident earlier this year, in January. Tekashi allegedly choked a 16-year-old boy in a Houston mall. The victim, Santiago Albarran reported the incident to police claiming he ran into Tekashi and started recording him, which lead to Tekashi yelling at the kid to erase the video. Albarren say that Tekashi then grabbed him by his neck. Adding that he erased the video so he wouldn’t get hurt again. His family witnessed the whole thing and another person caught parts of the altercation on their phone.

Tekashi will be extradited to Texas.
