ATLANTA — Rapper Young Dro has reportedly been arrested after an argument with his girlfriend turned physical.
TMZ reported that, according to unnamed law enforcement sources, the 40-year-old "Shoulder Lean" rapper was arrested July 5 after getting into an argument with his girlfriend about money. When the argument got heated, TMZ reported, the two began throwing food at each other -- Dro, whose real name is D'Juan Montrel Hart, threw a plate of banana pudding.
Police were called to the Atlanta home and Dro was arrested. According to TMZ, his girlfriend said she didn't want to press charges, but he was taken in and is now facing two counts of simple battery/family violence.
The tabloid site reported that Dro remains in jail on a child support contempt order. According to legal documents, he owes nearly $41,000 in back child support to a different woman. He needs to pay $10,000 to be released, according to jail records. Dro says he's paid the child support and it's a clerical error, TMZ reported.
