6ix9ine Arrested in NYC for Outstanding Warrant in Texas Teen Assault Case

6ix9ine is once again behind bars. The controversial rapper was arrested at JFK Airport on Wednesday over an outstanding warrant issued in Texas. 6ix9ine—legal name Daniel Hernandez—was wanted in Houston for allegedly choking a 16-year-old boy at a mall back earlier this year. According to The Blast, NYC authorities say 6ix9ine will not be extradited to the Lone Star state, but will remain in custody until Texas officials retrieve him. TMZ reports the “Gummo” artist could remain in custody until a tentative date of July 20, when Houston authorities are expected to pick him up. 

As previously reported, the 22-year-old artist was accused of assaulting a teenage fan on Jan. 6 at Houston’s Galleria Mall. The alleged victim, Santiago Albarran, claims he saw the rapper inside the complex and began filming him with his phone. 6ix9ine allegedly started yelling at the teenager, demanding him to delete the video before he grabbed Albarran’s neck.
