The guys who walked into an LA Fitness in South Florida and put a vicious beatdown on Tekashi 6ix9ine have now been arrested.
TMZ is reporting at least one of the men is a high-ranking member of the Latin Kings street gang. His name is Rafael Medina Jr..
He allegedly holds the title of “Inca,” which means he’s the president of his chapter down in Palm Beach, Florida. It’s reported that Medina served federal prison time back in the day, in connection with a R.I.C.O. case against the gang.
The other two men seen on LA Fitness security footage were Medina Jr.’s son, Octavious Medina, and a guy named Anthony Maldonado. It’s Maldonado who had the membership at the health club. He can be seen letting the two Medinas in and vouching for them.
Palm Beach County Sheriffs arrested all three men on Thursday. They probably weren’t hard to find because all of their faces were clearly captured on camera as they beat Tekashi in the bathroom of the establishment.
The men could be seen stomping, punching, and spitting on Tekashi while they dragged him by his hair on the bathroom floor. Authorities also charged the dangerous trio with robbery for stealing the “FEFE” rapper’s phone and Lamborghini car fob.
In addition, Tekashi 6ix9ine wore $3000 Balenciaga sneakers to the gym that day, and you guessed it… his attackers took those too.
It’s kind of a mystery why Tekashi did not have his security present, considering all the negative attention he’s garnered since he took the witness stand and snitched on his former Nine Trey Gangsta Boods gang in September of 2019.
Word is, Tekashi still feels he doesn’t need security anymore, even after what just happened. Perhaps his fans will encourage him to re-think that decision in the near future.
Until the next time it drips…
