The details of the warrant are unclear at this time. However, reports indicated it may have stemmed from a public nuisance case in North Bergen, New Jersey.

The sources also revealed the Trap Queen singer was able to get released on bail.

As Radar previously reported, Fetty had been released from the police custody in November after posting a $500,000 bond.

A little over a week prior, he was booked into jail by the FBI on drug charges related to what authorities described as an elaborate distribution scheme.

Fetty, whose real name is William Junior Maxwell II, was arrested along with five others while the group was at the Rolling Loud music festival in New York. All of them were charged with conspiring to distribute and possess controlled substances.

Five of the arrestees were also charged with using firearms in connection with the alleged drug trafficking ring. The group reportedly distributed 100 kilos of opioids and fentanyl from the West Coast to the East Coast. The FBI had released several photos of the drugs and money seized during the alleged drug bust.

Following his arrest, the FBI agent Michael Driscoll shared, "The fact that we arrested a chart-topping rap artists and a corrections officer as part of the conspiracy illustrates just how vile the drug trade has become."
