Atlanta police have arrested rapper Bow Wow and charged with misdemeanour battery on Saturday. According to Officer Jarius Daugherty, the rapper whose real name is Shad Moss, was arrested early Saturday following a fight with a woman in Midtown Atlanta.
A woman had called the police and when they responded, she told them Moss had assaulted her but the rapper said the woman had assaulted him, police said.”Officers were unable to determine the primary aggressor of the altercation, so both parties were charged with battery,” Daugherty said in a statement. Both of them reportedly suffered minor injuries and were taken to the Fulton County Jail. Bow wow was however released from jail Saturday afternoon. His lawyer Joe Habachy, said his client was wrongfully arrested. He added that the woman was intoxicated and beat Moss “with a lamp, bit him on his side and spit on him” while he “continually made efforts to avoid her.””For no logical reason officers arrested both parties despite having clear-cut evidence that Bow Wow was the victim in the case,” he added. He continued; “Bow Wow feels very strongly that a man should never lay a hand on a woman, even in self-defense, hence his failure to defend himself here,” he added.
