Dukes fled to his mother's house after the incident, where he was arrested. He also apparently has warrants on two other charges: contempt of court and driving with a suspended license. Previously, he had been arrested on a separate contempt of court charge and for failing to appear for a child support hearing.

So this is all bad news. On the bright side, "Fly Eli Fly" now has more "hardships" to rap about.
