Rapper Bow Wow was arrested early on Saturday morning in Atlanta.
The rapper, whose real name is Shad Moss, is accused of assaulting a woman at a private address in the early hours of the morning.
According to local station WSB-TV Atlanta, police said the woman, identified as Leslie Holden, and Moss “sustained visible minor injuries.”
Officers said they “were unable to determine the primary aggressor of the altercation, so both parties” were charged with battery.
Both parties’ charges are being processed and the suspects will be taken to the local jail.
Police say the investigation is ongoing.
On Twitter, the rapper has been promoting a Super Bowl pop-up shop fashion event for his mother happening Friday and Saturday, reminding “ladies” to “sip and shop”.

The 31-year-old rapper is best known for his rap music and movie roles in the early 2000s.
Moss was mentored by Snoop Dogg when he was starting out as an MC in the 1990s.
It was Snoop who gave Moss the stage name “Lil’ Bow Wow.”
In 2016, the rapper announced that he was retiring from rap and he posted on Twitter that it was a “blessing to have made millions” and be able to retire before 30.
Since retiring he has made forays into acting and producing.
