Rapper Tekashi69 was arrested in his hometown of NYC today on an outstanding arrest warrant out of Texas, according to TMZ.

Cops took him into custody at the airport–where had just arrived from a European tour.

Tekashi was arrested Wednesday at JFK Airport right after he returned from a European tour. Cops were enforcing a warrant out of Houston for a mall attack. As we reported, the rapper was wanted for allegedly choking a 16 year old kid in January at the Galleria Mall.
