A judge in Houston Texas has reportedly issued a bench warrant for Tekashi 6ix9ine’s arrest even though the rapper is currently incarcerated.
Following the receipt, the troubled musician was expected to show up in court on Thursday (December 20) to answer for an alleged assault which reportedly went down at H-Town’s Galleria Mall this January.
According to TMZ, the trial judge is aware of 6ix9ine’s travails but simply followed protocol and issued the warrant regardless. In this case, the Brooklyn-bred artist is accused of choking 16-year-old Santiago Albarran during a scuffle at the mall.
Albarran and 6ix9ine reportedly shook hands and posed for photos in October after a hearing. Albarran ultimately decided he didn’t want to prosecute.
Carl Moore, 6ix9ine’s attorney, declined to have a plea deal because he believes the case should be dropped. Taking a plea would also result in a conviction record and would hurt 6ix9ine’s pending federal case.
The rapper is presently behind bars at a New York facility on several felonious charges, including racketeering. His hearing is set for September 4, 2019, and could get life in prison sentence if convicted.
