Houston, TX – Tekashi 6ix9ine was all smiles leaving a Houston courthouse on Thursday (October 18). Santiago Albarran, the 16-year-old who accused 6ix9ine of attacking him at the Galleria Mall, showed up at court to essentially drop the pending assault charges.
During the proceedings, Albarran reportedly made it clear he didn’t want to prosecute the polarizing rapper.
According to TMZ, Albarran told 6ix9ine’s attorney Carl Moore he wasn’t interested in going through with the charges and let prosecutors know that as well.
Afterward, the Brooklyn native and Albarran ran into each other in the hallway where they posed for a picture.
A judge issued a warrant for 6ix9ine back in May following the alleged assault. 6ix9ine was apprehended at the John F. Kennedy International Airport two months later.
