Rapper Webbie, whose repertoire includes the Billboard Top 10 single “Independent” (featuring Lil Phat and Lil Boosie) and getting banned from the BET countdown show 106 & Park, was arrested Thursday on charges of battery and robbery.
The official police report alleges that Webbie kicked a woman down a flight of stairs and stole $340 from her purse. According to TMZ, the rapper’s rep acknowledges his client’s interaction with the woman in question, but denies the physical altercation occurred.
In a shocking plot twist, Webbie said he took the money but maintains he never harmed his accuser and that the money actually belonged to him. As previously mentioned, Webbie (nee Webster Gradney, Jr.) made headlines last year when he was prohibited from any future appearances on 106 & Park after the show’s host claimed he sexually harrassed her. The rapper is currently out on a $9,000 bond. No reports yet on whether he’s planning a neck tattoo to commemorate the event.
