Police in Las Vegas say rapper Fetty Wap was arrested after allegedly assaulting three employees at a hotel.

The 28-year-old, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, was arrested Sunday morning on three counts of battery, police said.

Local news reports said he hit a parking attendant after getting into an argument. Police originally said Wap hit an employee but later said he “committed a battery” on three.


Fetty Wap performed at the MTV Video Music Awards last week. He was arrested in November 2017 and charged with DUI after police say he was caught drag racing another car on a New York City highway.
