6:54 PM PT — Legal docs — detail some of the charges Tekashi has been indicted on and why prosecutors want the judge to deny him bail.

His attorney, Lance Lazzaro, proposed Tekashi be released if he paid the court $750k, surrendered his passport and remain on house arrest, suggesting that he wouldn’t be a flight risk under those terms. Lazzaro’s request was shot down … but he plans to file an appeal with the judge during a bail hearing Tuesday.
