In a bid to evade the authorities, Tekashi attempted to book a charter flight out of the country. However, the charter company, acting responsibly, checked with the local police and discovered there was a warrant for his arrest.

The rapper was subsequently transported to a police station in Sanchez, where the chaotic scene unfolded, with crowds surrounding the police cruiser. Officers had to clear a path to safely get Tekashi into the station.

Reports suggest that the altercation arose from jealousy, as Tekashi believed the producers were spending time with his girlfriend, Dominican artist Yailin La Mas Viral, who was recording songs at the studio during the incident.

One of the victims reportedly suffered a broken jaw, and authorities are currently searching for a second suspect connected to the assault, as reported by Diario Libre.

Tekashi 6ix9ine’s history of legal troubles is well-documented. In 2018, he was detained on racketeering charges related to his involvement with the Nine Trey Gangsters in New York.
