6ix9ine Arrested In NYC For Allegedly Choking Houston Teen



6ix9ine faces another controversy following his arrest at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on Wednesday. The rapper allegedly choked a teenager.

The rapper was apprehended on an outstanding arrest warrant in Texas that took place following an altercation at the Houston Galleria Mall earlier this year. A video of 6ix9ine seemingly choking the unnamed teenager went viral online.

Days later, the complainant confirmed the reports via Twitter and said that 6ix9ine attacked him. He also shared photos of himself following the incident, and it was evident that there was redness in his neck area.

6ix9ine's team told TMZ that they are aware that the rapper has an existing warrant, and they plan on addressing it soon.

6ix9ine's Other Arrests

The recent arrest is not the first time that 6ix9ine was apprehended by police officers. In 2015, he pleaded guilty to a felony count for the use of a child in a sexual performance. A video of a 13-year-old girl sitting on the rapper's lap while naked went viral at the time.

In May, 6ix9ine was arrested for driving without a working license. After he was stopped by patrols, he allegedly assaulted one of the police officials.

6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, rose to prominence last year following the release of his hit song "Gummo." However, the first time he released a song was actually in 2014. Some of his biggest hits are "Scumlife," "Yokai," and "Hellsing Station."

Rapper Talks About His Career, Feuds

In March, he sat down for an interview on Power 105's The Breakfast Club segment and declared that himself as the King of New York. He said that he is so successful that not even Cardi B could take the title away from him.

"Every song I put out makes Billboard top 100. I don't get no co-signs. I don't go no G-Eazy co-sign. I don't go no Offset co-sign. I'm self-made. I started it," said 6ix9ine.

During the same interview, the rapper talked about other artists that he has been linked to. For instance, he accused Casanova of using his name to gain popularity. He also said that The Game started a fight with him so he could reignite his career.

"His career - he's trying to spark it. You know, like an old marriage - he trying to spark it up. It's over blood. Hang it up," said the rapper.
