Bow Wow Arrested After Alleged Fight With Woman
American rapper Bow Wow and a woman he claimed had assaulted him, have been arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery after a confrontation they both had on Saturday, February 2, 2019.
The pair were apprehended by the police in Atlanta in the United States of America, after officers could not figure out which party was guilty of aggression. CNN News confirmed this the following day of the incident.
According to reports, the rapper whose real name is Shad Moss was taken to the Fulton County Jail along with the female offender. He was able to secure his freedom on Saturday afternoon after paying a bail fee of $8,000.

Bow Wow’s lawyer said in a statement to E! News: “Shad ‘Bow Wow’ Moss was wrongfully arrested [on Saturday] for the first time after being beaten by an out of control intoxicated female, Ms. Leslie Holden, in his Atlanta condominium. The only two independent witnesses both corroborated his version of events indicating that Ms. Holden was simply out of control and was without a doubt the primary aggressor.”
“For no logical reason, officers arrested both parties despite having clear-cut evidence that Bow Wow was the victim in the case,” the statement said. “Ms. Holden beat him with a lamp, bit him on his side, and spit on him while Bow Wow continually made efforts to avoid her. Bow Wow suffered multiple injuries, some of which are visible in his mug shot. Ms. Holden’s mug shot on the other hand speaks for itself, despite her allegation to police that she broke a fingernail.”
The lawyer added, “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. We are confident that the charges against Bow Wow will be dismissed and look forward to assisting the Fulton County Solicitor General’s Office in prosecuting Ms. Holden.”
