Fetty Wap Fined After Pleading Guilty To Drunk Drag Racing

Fetty Wap gets off easy in his DUI case.

(AllHipHop News) Fetty Wap has been ordered to pay a fine and attend a safe driving program after pleading guilty to drunk drag racing.

The rapper was pulled over by police after he was spotted drag racing on the Gowanus Expressway in New York last November.

The "Trap Queen" star was apparently speeding in his Mercedes in a 50 mile an hour zone.

Fetty handed over an expired New Jersey driver's license to officers, at which point police noticed signs of intoxication.

He was given a field sobriety test but blew a 0.9 - just above the legal limit.

The rapper, real name Willie Maxwell II, was arrested for 15 charges including reckless endangerment, drag racing, driving under the influence, driving without a valid license, unsafe lane changing, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, following too close, and speeding.

On Thursday, 26-year-old Fetty pleaded guilty to both reckless endangerment and driving while intoxicated, and Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Marguerite Dougherty sentenced him to attend a two-day driver improvement program and 14 hours of an impaired driving program.

He also has to pay $500 in fines and attend a victim impact panel.

Zaine Richards, 31, who was behind the star in another car, was also arrested in November.

He pleaded guilty on Wednesday to reckless endangerment and unlicensed driving charges, and was told he would have to pay a $100 fine and $88 in surcharges, as well as attending a two-day driver improvement program.

Following his November arrest, Fetty defended his drag racing, telling reporters that it had never put others in harm's way.

"I would never put people in danger,” he said. “It was 2 o’clock in the morning. There wasn’t no cars behind us."
