The rapper Fetty Wap has been arrested on drug charges, it has been reported.

The 30-year-old, whose real name is Willie Junior Maxwell II, had been arrested in Thursday at Citi Field in Queens, New York City, during the Rolling Loud music festival.

A senior law enforcement official said the FBI had arrested the rapper in connection with federal drug charges, according to NBC. No other details were released.

The indictment against him is sealed, but he is expected to be arraigned on Friday.

Fetty Wap was previously arrested in 2019, on three counts of battery. Two years earlier, he faced a DUI charge after police said he was drag racing another car on a highway in New York City, according to NBC.

The rapper is best known for his 2014 debut single, “Trap Queen,” which got to No 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
