William Junior Maxwell II, better known as the rapper Fetty Wap, was arrested Thursday at Citi Field in Queens, New York, on federal drug charges, according to a law enforcement official.

Maxwell was arrested during the Rolling Loud Music Festival on charges stemming from a drug-related conspiracy involving heroin and fentanyl, a law enforcement official told ABC News. He was allegedly part of a six-member drug distribution ring charged with dealing heroin and fentanyl.

He will be in federal court in Central Islip on Friday.

The 30-year-old rapper was arrested in September 2019 for punching hotel workers at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
