Tekashi69 is no longer a wanted man in Texas, because cops nabbed him in NYC on an outstanding arrest warrant ... TMZ has learned.
Tekashi was arrested Wednesday at JFK Airport right after he returned from a European tour. Cops were enforcing a warrant out of Houston for a mall attack. As we reported, the rapper was wanted for allegedly choking a 16-year-old kid in January at the Galleria Mall.
6ix9ine's team tells us they were aware of the warrant, and intended to handle the matter soon.
They also think NYPD has no business arresting him and extraditing him to Texas for what's ultimately a misdemeanor case.
