Rapper Fetty Wap is facing scores of charges after he was arrested for allegedly drag racing early Friday in Brooklyn, New York, according to People.

A New York Police Department (NYPD) spokesperson told People that Fetty Wap was allegedly found racing another vehicle in a Mercedes on the Gowanus Expressway around 1:21 a.m. local time.

“[He was] in the vicinity of Hamilton Avenue driving recklessly at a high rate of speed causing a dangerous condition while racing another vehicle within the confines of the 72 precinct,” the spokesperson said.

ABC 7 NY on Friday reported that police saw Fetty Wap driving a black 2012 Mercedes CLS AMG during the incident.

The officer detected signs of intoxication and next gave Fetty Wap a field sobriety test, which he failed by blowing a .09.

Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell II, then failed a second sobriety test at the nearby precinct.

The rapper was charged with reckless endangerment, illegal speed contest, operating a motor vehicle with .08, driving while intoxicated and reckless driving.

Fetty Wap was also charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, motor vehicle license violation, unsafe lane change, following too close and illegal signal.
