According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Petty was indicted and then arrested by the U.S. Marshals for failing to register as a sex offender. Minaj’s husband was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in 1995.
Petty moved from New York to California with Minaj in July 2019. He was pulled over by law enforcement while driving in Beverly Hills in November, which caused the legal issues to begin.
