Afroman Arrested

Afroman was in the middle of a performance Tuesday when one of the women in the audience went on stage and tried to approach him as he played guitar, reported Billboard. Without even looking to see who the person was, Afroman spun around and swung at the woman, leveling her to the stage floor.

After punching the woman, Afroman reportedly continued to play while the woman was apparently bleeding and crying out, reported TMZ, who obtained video of the assault. The house lights eventually came on, the music stopped and the woman was helped offstage. Afroman, meanwhile, was handcuffed and led out of the music venue.

Afroman’s rep, who didn’t deny the attack, claimed that the rapper’s reaction was an “involuntary reflex” and “uncharacteristic” of the musician.

“This was a completely involuntary reflex reaction to people infringing on his stage space,” his rep said in a prepared statement. “It was uncharacteristic behavior that was initiated by outside uncontrolled forces.”
