Rapper Fetty Wap charged with punching valet at Las Vegas hotel: reports

New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap was arrested Sunday morning after punching at least one person during an altercation in Las Vegas, according to multiple reports.

The hip-hop artist, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, struck an employee of a business on or near the popular Las Vegas Strip and was charged with three counts of battery, police told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Authorities did not release any details, but TMZ reported that the employee was a valet at the Mirage Hotel and Casino and that the one-eye celebrity also hit two other people during the early morning fight.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department did not immediately return requests for information on Monday afternoon.
