An Atlanta rapper is facing a simple battery charge after police said he weaponized a plate of banana pudding during an argument with his girlfriend, according to TMZ.
Young Dro, whose real name is D’Juan Montrel Hart, was taken into custody at his South Fulton home after the spat, according to jail records.
The couple were originally arguing about money. However, when the dispute escalated, each started throwing anything they could find at each other, TMZ reported.
When police arrived, the woman said she didn’t want to press charges, according to TMZ. However, Hart was arrested and now faces a count of simple battery (family violence).
Hart, known for his mixtapes and hits including “Shoulder Lean” and “FDB,” was booked into the Fulton County jail, where he is still being held on a $12,500 bond. That’s because in addition to the new charge, Hart is under a child support contempt order. The rapper is accused of owing nearly $41,000 in child support, TMZ reported.
