It’s 2021 and people still haven’t learned to keep their hands to themselves, particularly in romantic relationships. Chicago rapper Lil Reese was recently arrested for assaulting his girlfriend, only a couple of weeks out from getting shot, again.
TMZ reports that Reese was popped on the night of May 29 after cops were summoned to his own crib around 10:30 pm. Per the police report, Reese’s girlfriend told the authorities he put hands on her after a furious argument turned physical, allegedly.
According to the report, her hair was pulled and she was hit in the face with a first during the incident. The results were an “abrasion” on her lower lip, which the officers on hand took note of. Reese was then arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.
However, Reese is denying the incident went down as described. According to his rep, the police report only takes into account his girlfriend’s side of the story.
