Reggae star Bounty Killer, real name Rodney Price, was arrested on Saturday (September 18) for suspicion of assaulting a female companion in Jamaica.
The Grammy-nominated artist, who has worked with acts such as The Fugees, Wyclef Jean, Mobb Deep, Capone-N-Noreaga, Swizz Beatz, AZ, The Wu-Tang Colan and others, was taken into custody after a woman arrived bleeding at the Constant Spring Police Station, saying Price had “beat her up.”
Deputy Superintendent Altermoth Campbell said to the Jamaica Observer, “She turned up here sometime after six and said that he used a hammer to beat her up.”
Price has been charged with wounding, and remains in custody. He is expected to appear in court next week.
The complaint comes months after Bounty Killer was arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend. Those claims were eventually dropped.
