NEW YORK — Rapper Fetty Wap has been charged with DUI and other counts after police say he was caught drag racing another vehicle on a New York City highway early Friday.

New York Police Department spokesman Sgt. Thomas Antonetti said Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, was spotted speeding on the Gowanus Expressway just after 1 a.m. and was clearly racing another vehicle.

Antonetti said Maxwell was pulled over and given a breathalyzer test that registered a blood-alcohol level of .09, just over the legal limit of .08.

In addition to DUI, Maxwell is also charged with a host of traffic offenses.
