Brooklyn-born rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was busted in Bed-Stuy for assaulting a cop after parking in front of a fire hydrant, police said Monday.
The 22-year-old hip-hop artist, known for his rainbow-colored hair and matching dental work, parked his red 2017 SUV in front of the hydrant on Sterling Place around 4:15 p.m. Sunday, cops said.
Cops approached him, and he gave them his real name, Daniel Hernandez, but he couldn’t produce any valid ID. Officers then ran a computer check and discovered that his driver’s license had been suspended.
Tekashi was charged Sunday with aggravated unlicensed operation, but additional raps were filed against him Monday — for assaulting a cop — after he allegedly grabbed an officer by the hand while his handcuffs were being taken off inside the 77th Precinct station house, police said.
“He squeezed the [cop’s] hand, causing pain and swelling,” a police spokesman said
