Charges against the 21-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jayden Merritt, are pending.
According to TMZ, Tjay was reportedly on his way to film a music video with fellow rapper Ice Spice.
Last year, Lil Tjay was shot seven times in a robbery attempt in Edgewater, New Jersey that left him in critical condition. He was shot outside a Chipotle restaurant just after midnight on a June evening.
