6ix9ine is legitimately behind bars after being arrested on an outstanding warrant when his plane landed back in the states.
The Blast has confirmed the hip-hop star is currently in custody after he was arrested Wednesday when he arrived at JFK Airport. He had been in Europe the past few weeks performing.
We're told Tekashi69 was taken into custody over the misdemeanor assault warrant out of Houston, where he was wanted for allegedly choking a 16-year-old boy.
NYPD tells us the "Gotti" rapper will be held in NYC lockup until Texas officials come and take him, and that he will not be extradited across the country.
We're told if nobody comes to pick him up, 6ix9ine will eventually be released.
As we reported, he has previously pretended to be in jail, but this time it's for real.
