Shad Moss, aka Bow Wow, became the first celebrity casualty of the star-studded Super Bowl weekend in Atlanta. The 31-year-old rapper was arrested early Saturday in Atlanta, Channel 2 Action News confirms.
The troubled rapper is accused of assaulting a woman at 205 12th Street around 4:15 a.m., according to a police report obtained by WSB-TV. The woman was also taken into custody, since they both displayed signs of injury.
Atlanta police say “they were unable to determine the primary aggressor of the altercation, so both parties were charged with battery.”
The woman was not identified, but Bow Wow recently reunited with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Kiyomi Leslie (pictured).
A day before the altercation, Bow Wow promoted a pop-up shop for his mother, Teresa Caldwell, at Salon Morae.
“Ladies in town for the Super Bowl don’t forget… My mother is having her @shoptasteonline “SIP & SHOP” today!!! 1pm-7pm Fri & Sat. #shopping #food #drinks,” he tweeted on Friday.
Bow Wow, who is a native of Ohio, is a full-time resident of Atlanta.
He is best known as child rapper “Li’l Bow Wow” – a stage name bestowed upon him by his idol Snoop Dogg.
Bow Wow was the protege of rap producer Jermaine Dupri, who crafted hit songs for the youngster, including “Bounce with Me” off his debut album Beware of Dog.
In 2016, Bow Wow announced he was retiring from rap. He currently stars as himself in the Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta reality TV show.
