Fetty Wap Arrested at Rolling Loud New York, Indicted on Drug Trafficking Conspiracy Charge
Fetty Wap has been indicted by the FBI on a drug trafficking conspiracy charge for allegedly transporting and distributing drugs — including heroin, fentanyl and crack cocaine — in Long Island and New Jersey. 

According to an indictment obtained by CNN, the arrest took place Thursday (October 28) at Citi Field just before Fetty — real name Willie Junior Maxwell II — was set to take the stage at Rolling Loud New York. 

The indictment charges Fetty with one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess controlled substances, while four other men were also charged with use of firearms in connection with a drug trafficking crime.

According to documents viewed by TMZ, officials claim to have obtained $1.5 million USD in cash, 16 kilograms of cocaine, 2 kilograms of heroin, fentanyl pills, pistols, handguns and a rifle. If convicted, Fetty could face life in prison.

In a statement to TMZ, Fetty's attorney Navarro Gray said, "We pray that this is all a big misunderstanding. He sees the judge today. Hoping he gets released so we can clear things up expeditiously." 

In a press release, authorities claim that the drug pipeline in question contributed to "the addiction and overdose epidemic we have seen time and time again tear people's lives apart."

"As alleged, the defendants transported, distributed and sold more than 100 kilograms of deadly and addictive drugs, including heroin and fentanyl, on Long Island, deliberately contributing to the opioid epidemic that has devastated our communities and taken too many lives," stated United States attorney Breon Peace. "We will continue to work nonstop with our law enforcement partners to keep our neighborhoods safe from the scourge of dangerous drugs and gun violence."

The rapper is expected to be arraigned this afternoon (October 29) at Brooklyn federal court.
