Rapper Fetty Wap was nabbed for drunk driving early Friday morning after police caught him drag racing another vehicle on a New York City highway.
Formally known as Willie Maxwell, Fetty Wap failed his breathalyzer test by blowing a .09, just .01 over the legal limit of .08.
New York Police Department spokesman Sgt. Thomas Antonetti tells The Associated Press that Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, was spotted speeding on the Gowanus Expressway just after 1 a.m. and was clearly racing another vehicle.
Antonetti says Maxwell was pulled over and given a breathalyzer test that registered a blood-alcohol level of .09, just over the legal limit of .08.
In addition to DUI, Maxwell is also charged with a host of traffic offenses.
