Rapper Fetty Wap was arrested Monday after he allegedly threatened to kill someone and showed a gun during a FaceTime call last year, according to a court filing.

Fetty Wap was indicted and arrested in October along with five others on a drug trafficking conspiracy charge.

He pleaded not guilty and was released on $500,000 bond as he awaited trial, and one of the conditions listed in the release order stated that he “must not possess a firearm, destructive device, or other weapon.” Another said that he “must not violate any federal, state or local law.”

Prosecutors accuse Fetty Wap, whose legal name is Willie Junior Maxwell II, of violating those conditions during a December 11 FaceTime call in which he was allegedly seen holding a gun and threatening to kill an unnamed man, according to an affidavit supporting revocation filed in the Eastern District Court of New York.

New York Magistrate Judge Steven Locke revoked the rapper’s bond following his Monday arrest in New Jersey, according to John Marzulli, spokesperson for the Eastern District of New York.

In a video recording of the call, Fetty Wap allegedly pointed the gun toward him over the phone, the affidavit said. The man is identified as John Doe in the document.

“The defendant then says to John Doe ‘Imma kill you and everybody you with,'” according to the document.

The affidavit alleges that the rapper threatened the man several times during the call.
