September 14, 2012 in Really!? by Matthew Creole

Rapper Webbie has been arrested for battery and robbery after allegedly kicking a woman down a flight of stairs and nabbing $340 from her purse, reports TMZ. However, the artist tells the website that the allegations are all false.

According to a police report filed in Baton Rouge, LA, Webbie is accused of attacking a woman inside a Chase Suite Hotel this morning after being banned from the premises, then kicking her down two sets of stairs before swiping her purse and stealing $340 in cash.

According to the report, Webbie was arrested on the scene at approximately 2:30 a.m. A rep for the performer tells TMZ he met his accuser at a party Wednesday night — but he never attacked her, or stole her money.

The rep admits Webbie took money from the woman’s purse — but insists the money is his, and the woman in question had stolen it from him.

The rep says Webbie , who was released today on $9,000 bond, plans to fight the accusations.

UPDATE***

News broke yesterday that rapper Webbie had been arrested on charges of assault and robbery after the Louisiana emcee reportedly kicked a woman down a flight of stairs and took her money. Now, in a recent statement from the victim, new details emerge in the case that paint a different picture.

Speaking through her lawyer, it turns out that the woman had been involved in an 18-month relationship with Webbie. She indicated that the reports of the assault were greatly exaggerated by the media and has no plans on pursuing any such charges in a legal setting. Furthermore, she added that Webbie did not rob her, but had attempted to non-maliciously withhold funds he had given her to travel out of the state.

Check out the full statement below.

Atlanta, GA- Contrary to recent media reports and what can only be described as an exaggeration of
actual events, “Webbie” (Webster Gradney, Jr.) did not “brutally” attack my client and, fortunately,
my client did not suffer injury requiring medical attention.
The “robbery” was unfortunately a non-malicious attempt, by the accused, to deny the woman
resources he had given her to leave the city, via air transportation, following their domestic
argument. The accused did not “meet” my client at a party but rather they had been residing together,
off and on, for more than 18 months. Though a rocky relationship, my client and Mr. Gradney spent
the evening together after being separated briefly. The early morning assault is domestic related and
should be treated as such.
While neither my client nor I condone acts of violence, especially domestic, we will not conspire
with the media or officials to paint an inaccurate picture of Mr. Gradney or the events. We will not
conspire with anyone to deliberately destroy Mr. Gradney’s reputation, life and/or career. Neither my
client nor this case should be used as a tool to send another “black rapper” to prison for any other
case or charge that is unrelated to these events.
Both parties want nothing more than to move beyond this matter. It’s an unfortunate situation and my
client will, however, cooperate with officials as required by law.
