Bow Wow has been arrested following a fight with a woman in Atlanta.
Officer Jarius Daugherty said in an email that the rapper, whose given name is Shad Moss, was arrested early Saturday.
Police were called to an address in Midtown Atlanta around 4:15 a.m.
When they arrived, a woman named Leslie Holden – who has now been revealed to be Moss’ on and off girlfriend – told them she’d been assaulted by Moss.
Officers also spoke with Moss, who said Holden assaulted him.
Police say both Moss and Holden had ‘visible minor injuries.’
In a mugshot Moss can be seen with two large cuts on his forehead and injuries under his eyes.
Officers couldn’t tell who was the primary aggressor, so both were charged with battery.
Police say both were being processed and would be taken to the Fulton County jail.
A later update from TMZ revealed that Fulton County Sheriff’s Office told them Moss has been charged with Battery Substantial Physical Harm, conflicting with earlier reports that both had only minor injuries.
Moss, 31, came to fame as a protege of Rapper Snoop Dogg, who christened the young rapper, Lil’ Bow Wow.
The website reports that Moss’ bail has been set to $8,000.
He lives in Atlanta and has been part of the cast of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
