INKSTER, Mich. (WXYZ) — U.S Marshals have captured the latest Most Wanted suspect just a day after being featured on 7 Action News.

They arrested aspiring Detroit rapper Dana "BabyTeeth" Henry in Inkster Friday afternoon based off a viewer tip pinpointing his location. U.S. Marshals say the tipster called into Crimestoppers of Michigan Friday morning and a team moved quickly to investigate the home. Henry was arrested without incident.

Hours after we posted the article to Facebook Thursday, Henry commented on the story questioning the evidence and claiming officials were "defamating" his character.

Deputies say Henry's crimes are anything but small. He allegedly attacked his girlfriend at her home on Detroit's east side.

"Not only did he beat this woman, he picked up the hammer and hit her in the head with it," said Watson. "And to make matters worse, then he picks up a gun and puts it to her face with these two kids there to see it and threatens to kill their mother."

The suspect is also reportedly a member of the 11 deep gang located in Detroit.

"The gang is called 11 deep, but once we arrest this guy, they’re gonna have to change their name to 10 deep," Watson said.

Police say Henry was still freely using social media to promote his rap career. He has criminal history in Taylor, River Rouge, Detroit and Dearborn.

Thanks to your help, he is now in police custody.
