6ix9ine has finally been freed from jail on $500,000 bail after being arrested in the Dominican Republic on an assault charge.
According to D.R. news outlet, Antena Noticias 7, the controversial rapper was released, but there is still a restraining order in place meaning he has to stay away from the two men he allegedly assaulted. He also has to take anger management classes.

Translated into English, 6ix9ine said: “First of all, I want to thank God, Dominican Republic, thank you. I love you. Thank you for the support. Thank you for the love that the people of La Vega. You are there tomorrow morning. The firm promises are very small. There is a lot of you.”

The Brooklyn rapper (real name Daniel Hernandez) was arrested earlier this month for allegedly assaulting two men over an incident involving his girlfriend.
Footage that surfaced online allegedly showed 6ix9ine and his crew pulling to a producer’s home in the D.R. before fleeing the scene minutes later. The alleged altercation itself wasn’t captured on camera, but police issued a warrant for the rapper’s arrest for “blows and injuries, and threats.”
According to criminal lawyer Felix Portes, 6ix9ine was attempting to board a private jet to flee the country when authorities stopped the plane.
After brief uncertainty surrounding his whereabouts, he was eventually taken into police custody, with footage of his arrest and a photo of his mugshot making the rounds online.
6ix9ine broke his silence regarding his arrest last week, thanking fans in Spanish on his IG Stories.
Translated into English, the message reads: “First I want to thank God that I am in good health and well cared for, and thank you to everyone who has me in prayer.
“Thank you for your support, I love you very much. I feel so happy seeing you in full support. The same day I get out of jail, I want to give them a little gift for the neighborhood of Vega.”
It continued: “I’m going to give you a free concert in Vega with Romo and everything [will be] for free. Thank you for your support. I’ll give it back. I love you.”
