Bow Wow arrested

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.

    4:15 a.m.
    Most sane people are asleep at that time and their Rapid Eye Movement (REM) is in overdrive.
    What's wrong with these pseudo "celebrities"? So desperate.

  • Lady_Elle

    Bow Wow... needs therapy.
    Mental illness is real...
    Of course GROWING UP would help just as much!

  • xenaD

    I know I can recite his first two albums word for word.. every last song ???

  • XoXo

    Another article said it was Leslie Holden that got arrested as well. He needs to take a break on relationships until he attends counseling. Because he is attracting the same kind of women.

  • Pamela

    Is that a good thing or tragic? ???

  • stav

    Even with a lift they use a small implant, but i'm sure you’re beautiful no matter what, breast don't make the woman..but I understand!

  • Michele Williams

    It was his girlfriend Kiyomi . Leslie Holden is her government name.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    That girl probably whooped bow wow ass.

  • Sheila Makena

    Being in relationships with people who trigger you can be addictive and deadly. The chemistry and sex is incredible but the flip side can be a total nightmare. It's not worth it.

  • xenaD

    It’s good to me but every damn body hates him. Idk why... but my grown ass still listens idc

  • NeverSurprised

    Probably did. Shad looks like he has the strength of a malnourished flea.

  • Ebony Starr

    They're going to miss out on all of the Superbowl festitivies. Can they bonded out on the weekend?!

  • SandraRose

    They say Bow Wow was injured so badly, cops had no choice but to arrest her too. Let's hope the woman is bio - for his sake.

  • Vonn

    Shad is the runt of the litter. Can't wait to hear the full story.

  • ???TheRider???

    I’m 40DDD, I know your pain ?

  • millz

  • What???

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    It’s his gf. She whooped him. He was showing out. She fkd him real good. They’ll make up again. Madness

  • KcoolMuziq

    Shad(whom I worked with on two projects) was very charismatic.
    Remember it's two sides to every story. Them arresting both speaks volumes.
