G Herbo charged with battery, faces up to one year in prison
Chicago rapper G Herbo has been charged with battery after allegedly assaulting the mother of his child, Ariana Fletcher, during an argument. As TMZ reports, “prosecutors are accusing him of intentionally hurting Ari by dragging her by her hair and scratching her arm badly enough to leave visible wounds.” He faces up to one year behind bars if convicted.
Herbo was first arrested in Atlanta last month, and then released on a $2,000 surety bond.
Herbo had accused Fletcher of stealing jewelry from his mother’s house in an Instagram Live video, and in a since-deleted Instagram post, Fletcher shared her side of the story, saying: “He kicked my door down to get in my house because I wouldn’t let him in, beat the fuck out of me front of my son. Then he took my son outside to his friends and had them drive off with my son, hid all my knives in my house, broke my phone and locked me inside and beat the fuck out of me again (choked me, punched me in my face and all over my body, dragged me outside on the concrete by my hair after his friends drove off with my son, took me in the house and continued beating me). He wrecked my whole house, broke all type of shit. I have a black eye, my body scraped up from being dragged outside, bruises and cuts all over my body.”
