TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Rap star Tekashi 6ix9ine was arrested in Florida Wednesday evening, according to records from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office.
Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, had a run-in with the law on June 11 when he was stopped by the Florida Highway Patrol for driving 136 mph in a 65 mph zone.
When Hernandez failed to appear for his court date on July 12, a warrant was issued for his arrest.
On Wednesday, Aug. 9, Hernandez was stopped again when deputies “observed a vehicle commit a moving traffic infraction,” the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office told NBC News.
Deputies “also observed that the vehicle did not have a license tag.”
The sheriff’s office said Hernandez had a suspended driver’s license and an active traffic warrant for an unregistered vehicle. He was arrested, but released on a $2,000 bond shortly after midnight Thursday.
