Tekashi69 was accused of assaulting a police officer this week in New York after a traffic violation quickly heightened ... TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources disclose to us Tekashi was drawn nearer by an officer in Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn Sunday while his SUV was illegally stopped before a fire hydrant and, when requested to deliver a license ... the cop discovered it was suspended.
Tekashi was taken in to a Brooklyn precinct to be given a work area appearance ticket, yet police soon realized there was an open warrant for his capture in Texas. We're informed that is the point at which they bound him and tried taking him into care ... yet, not before he professedly got grabby.
Cops say Tekashi crushed a lieutenant's hand while being secured, squeezing it so hard evidently that it caused swelling. He was reserved for assaulting a police officer - a lawful offense - and unlicensed operation of an engine vehicle.
He was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court and discharged on $25k bail.
The New York Post broke the narrative of Tekashi's capture.
