Brooklyn rapper Maino, born Jermaine Coleman, was arrested on Thursday morning (Oct. 23) for allegedly assaulting porn star Mellanie Monroe. The incident occurred in a park SUV outside of the NYC nightspot The Griffin on early Tuesday (Oct. 21) morning. 

Maino turned himself into authorities and was charged with misdemeanor assault. The account of the altercation is loaded with struggle, though.

Reports Page Six:

The altercation began when skin-flick diva Mellanie Monroe was inside Maino’s truck outside of the Griffin around 3 a.m. and claims he punched her in the stomach and ribs and kicked her in the leg, according to police.

Cops at the scene helped her out of the vehicle and Monroe left on foot. Maino’s truck also drove away in the same direction, according to sources.

At the corner of Washington and Gansevoort streets, she saw his vehicle and threw a hair brush at it, the source said.

The dueling duo began fighting again, but this time Maino stayed inside his vehicle, while his security stood by with a Champagne bottle, the porn star told police.

Monroe then began tussling with his security guard and tried to snatch the Champagne bottle. The two fell to the ground causing the curvy blond to hit her head, she told police.

All this info is from the police reports, thus Monroe’s side of the story. If Maino did put hands on the adult film actress, why did the cops just let him go?

Maino’s reps are denying he even knew the actress before that night.

Maino’s reps said he was at the hotspot celebrating the recording of “King of Brooklyn Part 2,” when “a loud, belligerent young lady, whom he did not know, was escorted from Maino’s presence.”

The reps said he at no point had any physical contact with the actress.

Yep, we definitely gotta hear both sides. Maino’s King of Brooklyn Part 2 project is due out November 25.
