Afroman Arrested After Hitting a Female Fan in the Face

Afroman Arrested After Hitting a Female Fan in the Face Onstage in Mississippi—See His Mug Shot!

Natalie Finn, eonline

It's because he couldn't see what was going on!

At least that's what Afroman 's rep insists after the "Because I Got High" rapper was arrested for assault Tuesday after clocking a woman in the face when she popped up onstage during his performance at Kress Live in Biloxi, Miss.

The incident was caught on video obtained by TMZ , but his rep told the site that security was lacking at the venue and Afroman couldn't tell what the fan's intention was, let alone that it was a woman.


The woman in question was escorted off the stage by security and proceeded to file a report.

Meanwhile, E! News confirms that Biloxi Police took Afroman (real name Joseph Edgar Foreman) into custody outside Kress Live after responding to a call about an assault. The rapper was booked and released on a $330 bond.

Did anyone see the video? I saw it on the news, that punch was pretty brutal. disbelief

I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.

I can think of nothing quite so pleasing as a boot well-planted up his fat ass.

According to the latest report, his tour has been cancelled indefinitely due to venues pulling out. He's been hit where it hurts the most -- in his wallet.

Another thing that amazed me was that the lady's BF (apparently) jumps onstage after the punch......just looks at him.

I would have beaten him to death on the spot, had that been my GF.

No, he obviously should not have done that.

He would have gotten arrested himself as well. He needed to check out if his gf had not gotten injured, so it's good to see he had his priorities in order. The security in the place would have pinned him down in seconds had he even touched the performer. What he did by standing up and staring "Afroman" like he did and then went to his gf was the right thing to do.

Sure, I can understand that for many guys the first reaction would be to attack the person that's hit their girlfriend / wife / family member. Maybe he could have gotten away with just pushing "Afroman" around or something like that, but even that's a bad idea as it can easily get to the point when you're throwing punches. It's always a bad idea to get into fights when there's a large crowd witnessing what's happening, even if you feel what you're doing is justified. You can never really estimate how out of control you are yourself going to get in the process. You can't tell the court it would have been the right thing to do during the middle-ages, as modern laws are different.

The security really should have stopped the show though. Did that happen?

Sounds like it, yeah:

Local radio personality John Govia told NBC News the crowd was dumbfounded after the incident. Some people in the audience began to boo, and the owner of the Kress Live venue quickly canceled the performance.

Police were called to the scene and arrested the entertainer, whose real name is Joseph Edgar Foreman. He was booked on an assault charge and released on a $330 bond, according to reports.

A rep for the Grammy Award-nominated rapper told Billboard magazine that Afroman was caught off guard by the woman and reacted with a punch.

"This was a completely involuntary reflex reaction to people infringing on his stage space," the rep said in a prepared statement. "It was uncharacteristic behavior that was initiated by outside uncontrolled forces."

In a tweet on Wednesday afternoon, Afroman gave a curt reaction:

Afroman:

"It is what it is"

Afroman Issues an Apology (Bet he's missing that income from touring)

Feb 014

link



Afroman issued an apology and said he will enter anger management in his first public comments since the rapper was arrested for simple assault of a female fan during a show in Biloxi.

Afroman, whose real name is Joseph Foreman, told TMZ during a Skype interview that he must get his anxiety under control. "There was three wrongs in the situation," he said. "All I want to do is right my wrong."

He told the outlet that he did not realize it was a woman with him on stage. He was being heckled by a man the throughout the show. "I thought the girls had already left the stage and after hearing this guy for a few songs, I thought it was him," he told TMZ.


He did admit it was wrong regardless of who was on stage.

I've been rapping professionally since the year 2000. Early in my career I have had problems with people jumping on stage grabbing the Mics , spilling beer , on equipment and ruining a show . I had a special clause put in my performance contracts that demands security watch stage and politely discourage anyone from jumping on stage. In my 15 years of performing I noticed once one person jumps on stage 100 people jump on stage. In 2007 I hired a CPA to do my taxes. I had several accounts . Before getting sign to Universal I worked regular jobs where the employers took the tax out before I received the check. After signing with universal everyone would give me the money upfront and it was my responsibility to take out the taxes. To help checks clear I would transfer money from time to time. The CPA I was using at the time didn't know that and she was counting the transfers as profit deposits. This was money I had in the bank already. To make a long story short she told the IRS I made over 700,000 that year . When it was more like 200,000. I tried to explain this to the IRS they told me to pay the tax on the 700,000 and they will give me a refund later. Frustrated because I was over taxed I took a deep breath and begin paying unfair over Tax which is still collecting interest might I add. Not to mention things are a lot slower than they was in 2001. Two divorces didn't help me none either. I got blessed one time and played six shows that paid me 10,000 each . The last show paid me 7,000.
On Dec-4-2011 the st Charles county police dept in Missouri pulled me over and took all of the money I earned from the shows. When I asked them why they claimed I was a drug dealer. I told them I was a Grammy nominated singer/rapper they chuckled and Stuck to their suspicions. Before I got pulled over I gave a couple thousand to my mom and use some for myself I was down to 64,000. The DEA reported 54,000 indicating to me that either the St. Charles Police Department or the DEA stole 10,000 unreported dollars from me. Lloyd Cueto a lawyer I hired at the time took the DEA all of my tax records , and tax returns , musician plaques verification that I am a taxpaying working citizen of the United States verifying I made two to $300,000 a year legitimizing why I might have $64,000 of cash on me. After all of that the DEA refuses to give me my hard earned money back. Since I owed back taxes I figured the DEA would turn the money over to the IRS. The IRS fully aware that the DEA is illegally holding money and that they illegally robbed from me on the side of the 70 freeway 12-4-11. yet and still the IRS refuses to ask the DEA for the money. One branch of the government is telling me to pay my taxes the other branch of the government is Robbing the money I'm trying to pay my taxes with. I have been working hard trying to pay off the IRS and get my money back from the DEA. I keep the faith like all will work out in due time , but it's 5 or 6 years later interest is rising with the IRS while the DEA continues to read a newspaper and ignore the fact they have rob me for my money. The DEA never pressed charges . They just kept my money . I am working too hard for a crooked government . My patience has become short and I am losing my mind. I don't care if I pay the IRS or not. If they really want a payment they can take the money that the DEA stole from me. While I was paying unfair taxes working for the IRS I was also getting frustrated at a lack of security at a lot of my shows. We go over everything over and over again on the phone then when I performing the whole crowd jumps on the stage pours beer all over everything and I have to buy equipment the next day instead of make a profit. I figured everything would come together in due time I underestimated the frustration and anger in my life coming from everywhere and I tried to work and make everything work out. In my frustrating ambitious efforts ,the IRS , DEA , lack of security and other pressures in my life have busted my pipes to the point where I have disrespected another human being twice.

"I DID NOT UNLOAD A DEVISTATING PUNCH " LIKE TMZ LIED AND SAID I DID
It was a slap/ push . SHE WAS NEVER BLEEDING LIKE TMZ LIED AND SAID SHE WAS !!!!!!

IT WAS A SLAP/PUSH !!! And she quickly recovered. This situation is still bad however I must clarify its not as bad as lying news publications would have you believe.
The incident with the guy in Cincinnati did not happen the next night like mediatakeout lied and said it did . It happened last year.

Afroman.com is a fake afroman site
Ran by an anonymous stranger just like @afromanmusic is on Twitter that is a fake account ran by an anonymous stranger. My real twitter is @ogafroman. My actual website is
www.ogafroman.com
www. Instagram.com\ogafroman

.

Young lady I do not know your name
I want to truly apologize for slapping you. I understand if you never forgive me ever.

Young man whoever you are I want to apologize again for throwing you off stage. I understand if you never ever forgive me also .
I just got accepted into a anxiety anger mgt class . I start Friday .
I no longer have the desire to perform for people . I will continue to record I will continue to make albums I will continue to make videos I will continue to make movies .
Forgive me my debts as I forgive my debtors . I want to thank all the fans that forgave me . At one point I hated Ofc. Wilson now I am Ofc. Wilson or catching a similar fraction of the type of hate he caught

Don't hate because you might become the victim of your own hate

Matthew 7:1 judge not that ye be not judged for what judgment you judge you shall be judged .

They asked my youngest daughter last year what she wanted for Christmas and she said my daddy home every day. On that note I happily retire . I love rapping I love my fans but I love my kids and my family more .
it's been a blast . thank you .

I love Afroman, he's a great niche comedy rapper. Very talented, writes his own, arranges and plays his own. He can tell the hell out of a story in rhyme.
