Big Sean Arrested for Sexual Assault, Denies Charges

Big Sean Arrested for Sexual Assault, Denies Charges

The rapper faces accusations of "forcibly touching" a female fan.

Published August 5, 2011

A female fan told police that G.O.O.D Music rapper Big Sean got too grabby with her following his concert in Buffalo's Artpark last night, leading to charges of third-degree sex abuse and forcible touching. Sean and his sidekick Willie 'Sayitainttone' Hansbro spent a short amount of time in the slammer before they were released in the early morning.

 

Big Sean's lawyer Scott E. Leemon has issued a statement regarding last night's incident, explaining that he is confident they will be "vindicated" (via HipHopDX).

 

"Both men were charged with misdemeanors and they both vehemently deny the allegations. I am confident, that after further investigation, both men will be vindicated."

 

Hopefully Sean's incarceration doesn't get in the way of his touring plans, especially since he recently dropped hints about making a cameo on the fall's most highly-anticipated tour: "I got my own tour, probably coming in October,” he said. “I might got a special surprise too with a couple other legends. I might stop by theirs, they might stop by mine. Come watch the throne or something.”
