According to TMZ, Willie Maxwell, popularly known as New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap was arrested on Friday morning for drunk driving.

The “Trap Queen” rapper was driving a black 2012 Mercedes CLS AMG around 1 AM, when he was pulled over by police on the Gowanus Expressway in Brooklyn for speeding and drag racing with another vehicle, while under the influence. Fetty Wap, who appeared drunk to police, was allegedly going 100 miles per hour in a 50 miles per hour zone.
