Dwayne McKenzie, and employee of 50 Cent, was arrested Tuesday (May 27) for allegedly attacking a woman at the rapper’s mansion.
According to the Associated Press, Mckenzie was arrested after police received a phone call from a 22-year-old New Britain woman.
McKenzie was charged with assault, strangulation, breach of peace and unlawful restraint. He was released after posting a $10,000 bond, and is due back in court July 15.
Police reports say that McKenzie allegedly choked the woman and struck her with a belt on 50 Cent’s property.
McKenzie has a troubled past, as he is currently on conditional discharge as the result of an arrest in Hartford for allegedly pistol-whipping a nightclub promoter.
In addition, he allegedly fired a .40 caliber Glock into a crowd after having his $100,000 chain stolen in 2007.

UPDATE: Vasti Ortiz, the woman who was attacked at 50 Cent’s mansion in 2008, has filed a lawsuit against 50 Cent because she claims “he knew or should have known McKenzie was a known criminal who had assaulted in the past.” According to TMZ, Fif was not present during the attack.
