Kenneth Petty was accused of attempting to rape a girl at knife point in 1994 and is a registered sex offender.

Page Six now reports he was arrested for ignoring a stop sign in an unlicensed car in Nassau County and “was hit with a misdemeanor charge for operating an unlicensed vehicle along with infractions for failing to stop at the sign and driving with a suspended or revoked license.”

Minaj has defended the relationship via social media and condemned fans who urged her to beware of Petty.

She is yet to respond to this news.
