Tekashi 6ix9ine arrested in Florida months after brutal gym attack

Tekashi 6ix9ine, the rapper who has been caught up in numerous scandals, was arrested in Florida, as confirmed by TheFantasyTimes. The 27-year-old artist, known for his hit song “GOOBA,” was taken into custody at Palm Beach County Jail on Wednesday night for failing to appear in court, according to jail records. However, he was released on a $2,000 bond just three hours later. TheFantasyTimes has reached out to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for further information.

This recent arrest is just the latest in a series of legal troubles for Tekashi 6ix9ine. A few months ago, he was viciously attacked by a group of individuals in a bathroom at an LA Fitness facility in Florida. A disturbing video of the assault circulated on social media, showing two men towering over the rapper as he lay on the bathroom floor, desperately trying to shield his head from the blows. The assailants verbally abused him and inflicted physical harm, with one kicking his stomach and the other punching his head.

Following the attack, Tekashi 6ix9ine was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries to his jaw, ribs, back, and various cuts and bruises. The incident has been deemed “embarrassing” by his child’s mother, considering their 7-year-old daughter. The rapper has taken to social media to express his disdain for the attackers, labeling them as “cowardly.” He had previously claimed that he had been walking without security for two years, but now recognized the importance of protection.

Despite the violent encounter, Tekashi 6ix9ine acknowledged that the streets have no rules and refrained from placing blame on the assailants. He maintained that he had no involvement in the dispute they were attempting to settle. The three suspects involved in the attack, Rafael Medina Jr., Anthony Maldonado, and Octavious Medina, were apprehended and charged with robbery and assault.

Despite these challenges, Tekashi 6ix9ine expressed gratitude for still being alive and conveyed his love for his fans. He concluded his message by questioning the notion of respect for those who engage in physical confrontations, emphasizing that violence should never be glorified.

Born in Bushwick, Tekashi 6ix9ine gained notoriety for evading a lengthy prison sentence in 2019. Initially facing decades behind bars after pleading guilty to racketeering and other charges, he secured early release in 2020 by cooperating with authorities and testifying against his former gang, the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

His latest run-in with the law comes just months after he was pummeled by “three or four thugs” in an LA Fitness bathroom in Florida.

A graphic video of the beatdown circulated on social media in March, showing two men towering over 6ix9ine as he lies on the bathroom floor, trying to protect his head from the blows.

The men yell at him to “shut the f–k up” as one kicks his stomach and the other punches his head.

The ex-con was rushed to the hospital to treat injuries to his jaw, ribs and back, as well as cuts and bruises.

He has since spoken out about the attack, which his baby mama has called “embarrassing” for their 7-year-old daughter.

The rapper has since slammed his attackers on social media, calling them “nothing but cowardly.”

“For 2 years I been walking around with no security,” he said in March. “Not saying I promote that BUT now you see I really never hid from anything.”

He went on to call the men cowards before switching his tune, saying he’s “not mad” about the “unfair” situation.

“In the street there’s no rules so I cant say they were wrong,” he explained, noting that he had “nothing to do with” the business they were trying to settle.

“I’m happy to be here still. And I want to say I love my fans. Thank you,” the rapper continued, before concluding the post with a special message. “P.S : I never knew we respected jumping people. When did that ever become a W???”

The Bushwick-born musician is infamous for avoiding decades behind bars in 2019.

After pleading guilty to racketeering and other charges in 2019, he originally faced decades behind bars but was granted early release from prison in 2020 for testifying against his former gang, the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
