Fetty Wap was arrested Friday afternoon at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey on an outstanding warrant

The “Trap Queen” rapper, whose birth name is William Junior Maxwell II, was taken into custody after officers were notified of an active warrant via an ankle monitor call, according to NJ.com.

Port Authority spokesperson Amber Greene says the warrant was for a public nuisance ordinance, and added that Fetty was released after posting bail

As previously reported, Fetty was arrested October 28 during the Rolling Loud music festival at Citi Field in New York City. He was charged with five others, including a New Jersey corrections officer, with conspiring to distribute and possess controlled substances across Long Island and New Jersey.

After pleading not guilty to federal drug charges, Fetty was released on a $500,000 secured bond, along with other restrictions. As part of his release, he must stay under GPS monitoring, submit to random drug testing, surrender his passport, and only travel with the prior approval of Pre-trial Services and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The 30-year-old MC faces a minimum of 10 years and a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.
