Giving an account of the incident, Officer Jarius Daugherty said the Woman narrated that Moss had assaulted her first.

“Officers were unable to determine the primary aggressor of the altercation, so both parties were charged with battery,” Daugherty said in a statement to CNN

The rapper’s attorney, Joe Habachy, also told CNN that Bow Wow was wrongfully arrested.

He said the woman involved in the incident was intoxicated and beat Moss “with a lamp, bit him on his side and spit on him” while he “continually made efforts to avoid her.”

“For no logical reason, officers arrested both parties despite having clear-cut evidence that Bow Wow was the victim in the case.

“Bow Wow feels very strongly that a man should never lay a hand on a woman, even in self-defence, hence his failure to defend himself here,” he added.

The rapper’s mugshot reveals at least a few scratches on his face. His bail has reportedly been set at $8,000.
