Trippie Redd has been arrested for an alleged assault, according to TMZ. Law enforcement sources in Atlanta told the publication that local authorities responded to a call at 1 a.m. on June 12 from a woman claiming the rapper pistol whipped her.
An unidentified woman gave a statement about the alleged assault to DJ Akademiks, which included footage of what seems to be Trippie Redd being taken into custody by police. Watch the clip below.
In the video statement, the woman alleges the incident stems from prior conflict with the rapper and his girlfriend Angvish.
