Bow Wow And Ex-Girlfriend Arrested Following Domestic Dispute
Bow Wow was arrested in Atlanta early Saturday morning (February 2nd) following a fight with a woman that was confirmed to be his ex-girlfriend, Leslie "Kyomi" Holden. TMZ reported that there was a dispute between the rapper and Holden around 4:15 a.m. When they arrived, she claimed that Bow Wow assaulted her. Bow Wow, however, told officers that Holden assaulted him. They both sustained "visible minor injuries." Officers were unable to tell who was the primary aggressor, so both Bow Wow and Holden were arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery.
They were taken to Fulton County jail, where Bow Wow was later released after posting a $8,000 bond.
Bow Wow’s lawyer, Joe S. Habachy, released a statement to E! News, saying, "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."
Habachy continued, "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 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."
