The 41-year-old initially faced legal trouble after being pulled over by the Beverly Hills Police Department on Nov. 15, when the department determined he was registered as a sex offender in New York — but not in California, where he now resides, TMZ reported. He was reportedly arrested and charged by the Los Angeles County District Attorney at the time and released on a $20,000 bond.
The outlet reported that Petty pleaded guilty to the manslaughter charge in March 2006 and served seven years in prison after being sentenced to 10. Petty was released in May 2013, and had been on supervised release for five years until May of this year, records accessed by PEOPLE show.

“It’s the truth, money cannot buy me happiness and good sex,” Minaj said.
Minaj and Petty started dating in 2018 and tied the knot in October 2019.
