Fetty Wap has been charged with misdemeanour battery.

The 28-year-old rapper – whose real name is Willie Maxwell II – was arrested on September 1 after he was accused of attacking a valet at The Mirage Hotel and Casino in Nevada, Las Vegas, following a scuffle outside the establishment.

And it’s believed police now have enough evidence to charge Fetty with the crime, as the whole incident was caught on a security camera outside the premises, according to TMZ.

Citizen’s arrest

The surveillance footage caught the fight escalating as security guards in “large numbers” attempted to restrain the rap star and pull him away from the brawl.

However, things got out of hand quickly, and Fetty was seen striking the guard twice.

Once things calmed down, La Mirage security reportedly made a citizen’s arrest until the Las Vegas police arrived and took Fetty into custody to be booked.
