Court documents say that the violent incident was triggered by the fan pulling out his camera to record Tekashi69, which apparently the performer didn’t like. The teen involved told investigators that the rapper yelled at him and ordered him to delete the video. With the rapper’s hostile response, his bodyguards also surrounded the fan “in an intimidating way.”

The court documents also state that the fan erased the video that caught the rapper’s ire so she wouldn’t get hurt.

The fan’s mother also corroborated her son’s claim that he was choked by Tekashi69 during the police investigation.

Danny Boy is on a path to getting his ( ! ) exploited in prison looking like that. I would bet money he is short, hence a kind of Napoleon short-man syndrome.
