According to TMZ, he’ll remain in jail until the 20th of July, where the authorities will then send him to Texas. The police issued an arrest warrant for Mr. Hernandez after he skipped a court date stemming from a misdemeanor assault charge. Daniel allegedly choked a 16-year-old – Santiago Albarran.
Parents of the young boy reported the incident to the police after they noticed red marks on his neck upon returning home. Ann Scherzer, the court Justice, rejected his plea to get out of jail to support his family.
Daniel said he needed to take care of his young daughter and mother. Takashi said to the judge, as reported by Page Six, that he had learned a valuable lesson to be “more respectful” of others.
He didn’t realize it was “that serious of a warrant” for a misdemeanor. Page Six reports that the judge told Tekashi, “even though you think it’s just a misdemeanor, it’s a crime.”
