U.S rapper, Bow Wow was arrested early Saturday morning in Atlanta after he was accused of assaulting a woman at 205 12th Street around 04:15am.
Atlanta police said the woman, identified as Leslie Holden, and Bow Wow “sustained visible minor injuries.” Officers said they “were unable to determine the primary aggressor of the altercation, so both parties” were charged with battery.
Moss has since bonded out. His lawyer released a statement Saturday night, saying Bow Wow was wrongfully arrested after being “beaten by an out-of-control intoxicated female.”
Attorney Joe S. Habachy said Holden beat Bow Wow with a lamp, bit him and spit on him. Full statement,
“Shad Bow Wow Moss was wrongfully arrested earlier this morning for the first time after being beaten by an out of control intoxicated female, Ms. Leslie Holden, in an 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.
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 mugshot.
Ms. Holden’s mugshot on the other hand speaks for itself, despite her allegation to police that she broke a fingernail. It is unclear if Holden is out on bond and she has not commented on the charges.”
