New Jersey’s own Fetty Wap is in hot water after he was caught drag racing with another vehicle on the Gowanus Expressway in Brooklyn.
According to police, Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, was driving a black 2012 Mercedes westbound at approximately 100 miles per hour around 1:00 a.m. on Friday, November 3.
He was racing Zane Richards, 29, of Woodland Park, New Jersey, who was driving a 2008 Chevy Impala, also at speeds around 100 miles per hour.
Aside from the excessive speed, the pair were also making sudden lane changes, tailgating other drivers, and at one point, raced through an active construction zone.
To make matters worse, once Wap was pulled over, he gave police his New Jersey driver’s license, which is currently suspended.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Wap also showed signs of intoxication, and blew a .09 on a field sobriety test. A second test at the police precinct confirmed the initial result.
Both men are facing 15 counts related to the incident, including reckless endangerment, illegal speed contest, DWI, reckless driving, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, unsafe lane change, illegal signal, driving while alcohol impaired, and four speeding violations. Wap was arraigned the following morning.
If you’ve been arrested for DWI, a lawyer can make a big difference in your case.
