Jamaican Reggae star Bounty Killer is making headlines now that police say he attacked and beat a woman with a hammer.

Killer, real name Rodney Price, was arrested Saturday after a badly bruised woman reported to a police station claiming to have been beaten by the artist at his St. Andrews apartment.

Price was taken into custody and will appear before a judge next week.

The reggae artist was previously arrested in April after his girlfriend made claims of domestic violence and filed charges against him.

She later dropped the charges however and Killer was released.

He was also previously arrested for possession of a firearm and marijuana.
