According to county records viewed by Pitchfork, Hernandez had an open warrant for misdemeanor assault causing bodily injury. The charge stems from an incident in January 2018 at the Galeria Mall in Houston. The 16-year-fan alleges Hernandez grabbed him by the throat and choked him during an altercation.
