In the early morning of September 13, rapper Webbie was arrested in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for battery and robbery allegations. A woman has accused him of kicking her down two flights of stairs and stealing $340 from her purse. However, Webbie denies the woman's story and says it's all not true.
According a police report, he assaulted the woman at Chase Suite Hotel early that morning after being banned from the premises, kicking her down the stairs before taking her pocketbook and $340 in cash. While the details of the altercation are still unclear, Web was arrested on the scene at approximately 2:30 a.m.
His rep told TMZ that the rap star met the woman at a party the night before but did not assault her or steal her money. He did say that Webbie did go into the woman's purse, but only because she had stolen his money and he was retrieving it. The rapper, whose 2008 single "Independent" was an inspiring ode to women, was released the same day on a $9,000 bond, and now plans to fight the allegations.
