Popular Brooklyn rapper 6ix9ine, also known as Tekashi 69, finds himself in jail, this time in the Dominican Republic. The artist was reportedly arrested while attempting to leave the country on a private plane after being accused of assault.
This incident adds to his ongoing legal issues, as he was previously arrested in Florida for multiple traffic violations.
According to criminal lawyer Felix Portes in the Dominican Republic, 6ix9ine and his crew are accused of assaulting two producers in connection with an incident involving his girlfriend.
Footage of the alleged incident shows a group of men entering a building before quickly fleeing. The rapper’s attempt to leave the country on a private plane was thwarted as he was revealed to be on a “migration alert.” Portes disclosed on Instagram that 6ix9ine’s whereabouts are currently unknown since an arrest warrant has been issued for assault, injuries, and threats.
This recent arrest follows 6ix9ine’s encounter with the law in Florida earlier this year. In August, he was arrested for multiple traffic violations, including driving at a high speed of 135 mph in a 65 mph zone on the Florida Turnpike. Authorities discovered that his vehicle was unregistered and he lacked car insurance. As a result, he faced charges of failure to appear and was booked into a Palm Beach County jail. However, he was released after posting a $2,000 bond.
6ix9ine’s return to jail, this time in the Dominican Republic, highlights the rapper’s ongoing legal troubles. The alleged assault incident involving his girlfriend and subsequent attempt to leave the country on a private plane has resulted in an arrest warrant. This incident comes after his previous arrest in Florida for multiple traffic violations. As the legal proceedings continue, fans and followers of 6ix9ine will eagerly await updates on his situation.
