Gym officials immediately informed the manager about the attack, after which the cops and EMS arrived at the location. A viral picture of Daniel featured gashes and swelling on his face, and according to reports, he injured his jaw, ribs, and back.
The motive behind the incident remains unknown, and it is currently under investigation. The attack happened a few days after Daniel's appearance at the World Baseball Classic game in Miami, Florida, where he prevented another attack and was removed from the game for being too drunk.
6ix9ine was taken out of a baseball stadium for being heavily intoxicated
6ix9ine was spotted enjoying a baseball game at a stadium in Miami, Florida, on March 18, but his presence created a lot of trouble as he was heavily inebriated. Daniel had to be removed from the stands first.
According to a source for Page Six, he was heavily intoxicated and was not letting others enjoy the game properly. The source added:
"He was drunk, he was inebriated and he was out of control. There were a lot of families there last night and he was bothering people."
Daniel continued to create more problems in the game as he waved a flag and interrupted a fan's view. A viral video featured him in a completely drunken state and having issues maintaining his balance. The problems escalated to such an extent that officials had to escort him out of the stadium.
An individual named Aran Leighton recorded the moment when a beer can was thrown at the rapper, and it flew past him.
