On Sunday night, 6ix9ine and five of his former associates were arrested by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the NYPD and Homeland Security Investigations on a range of racketeering and firearms-related charges - each of these charges have maximum sentences between 3 years and life in prison.
6ix9ine was allegedly involved in an armed robbery in April, a shooting in Brooklyn and more. The indictment names the "Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods" as a “criminal organisation," so he was denied bail.
Reports say that 6ix9ine is now held in the general population at Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center. I guess it's good publicity though, as his new album drops on Friday.
