Hip Hop News: Rapper Da Brat Arrested Over Bottle to the Head

Rapper Da Brat was arrested early Thursday after a dispute at a nightclub in Atlanta, where she is accused of hitting a waitress over the head with a bottle of rum, according to CBS 46. DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said the 33-year-old rapper, whose real name is Shawntae Harris, is charged with aggravated assault. Rapper/producer Jermaine Dupri opened the nightclub “Studio 72” earlier this year. Located at 3965 Lawrenceville Highway, “Studio 72” is said to be a modern day version of New York’s Studio54. Parish said the police report indicates Harris and a 24-year-old waitress at the club got into a squabble after the waitress bumped into the rapper. She said at some point the waitress walked away and moments later was hit in the face with the bottle of rum. She sustained a deep laceration to the cheek and some swelling on the forehead. Parish said the waitress had a friend drive her to a hospital. Hits by Da Brat include the song “Funkdafied.” She also has appeared on reality shows such as “Celebrity Fit Club” and “The Surreal Life.”
