CASH MONEY records rapper JUVENILE has been arrested in MIAMI for allegedly hitting a man across the head with a bottle of champagne.
According to the Miami Herald newspaper in the US, the rapper was arrested by police outside of the Coconut Grove shopping mall early yesterday morning (March 28) following a series of altercations involving up to 20 people.
Local police claim the 26 year-old rapper, real name Terius Gray, was arrested by off-duty officers after eyewitnesses claimed he hit 28 year-old Jackson Saint Ange “on the head with a champagne bottle”, leaving him unconscious.
Juvenile was taken into custody where he was charged with aggravated battery with a bottle and battery on a police officer, as well as two misdemeanours – resisting arrest without violence and disorderly conduct. He was later released on bail.
A spokesperson for the police said: “Our understanding is that the victim said something to Juvenile inside The Improv (comedy club) which the rapper considered a diss. At some point, they get into a confrontation outside the club. The victim is hit on the head with a champagne bottle and left unconscious.”
According to police, as more fights broke out Juvenile went up to a police officer and shouted “Take me to jail, take my mother f—in’ ass to jail.” He was later arrested on his bus.
The rapper will appear in Miami circuit court on April 18.
