Hip hop artist Bow Wow appeared visibly angry with his girlfriend ahead of the alleged altercation that caused them both to be arrested last weekend, newly unveiled security footage shows.
The rapper snatched an undisclosed item from Leslie Holden’s hand and got face-to-face with her as they rode in an elevator in their apartment complex, video published Saturday by TMZ shows.
It’s unclear how much time passed between that elevator ride and the dispute that prompted their arrests.
Bow Wow — real name Shad Gregory Moss — and Holden were both arrested and charged with battery on Feb. 2 in Atlanta. Holden told police that Bow Wow assaulted her, while the rapper claimed to cops that Holden assaulted him.
They were both arrested because police failed to determine who was the aggressor. There were minor injuries visible on them both, police said at the time.
Mug shots also emerged last week, with Bow Wow’s photo showing multiple red marks on his face.
She also claimed police had previously come to their apartment, but that her boyfriend and two of his friends wouldn’t let her out of a bedroom to speak to cops, and took her phone away from her.
A separate 911 call made by the manager of the apartment building was also posted in that report. The manager says another resident reported the dispute to her, and that she could hear yelling and items being thrown. She claimed she heard a male voice say he would “slap the f--k out of this b---h.”
