Former Moesha star Marcus T. Paulk has been arrested for domestic violence, TMZ reports. The actor, best known for playing Brandy's little brother on the sitcom, allegedly hit his girlfriend Andi Roxx in the chin and punched her in the stomach during an argument. 

The fight between the couple began at a Beverly Hills nightclub on Tuesday night, when Paulk supposedly accused Roxx of not paying him enough attention. It escalated later that night when they returned home, and Paulk hit Roxx in the chin. She retaliated by swinging back and busting open his lip, and he then punched her in the stomach before forcing her to leave the premises.

The violence sent Roxx to the hospital the next morning, where she was treated for internal injuries. Upon telling her doctors and the police what transpired, cops reached out to Paulk and his attorney later arranged for the actor to turn himself in to authorities.

He was booked Wednesday afternoon.
