(Newser) – One Shad Moss was arrested early Saturday on misdemeanor battery charges in Atlanta, reports CNN. Better known as rapper Bow Wow, the charges stem from a fight with a woman, Leslie Holden, who was also charged with battery after "officers were unable to determine the primary aggressor of the altercation," per a police statement. Both suffered minor injuries in the fight. WSB-TV reports that Moss' lawyer is claiming wrongful arrest, noting in a statement that it's his first and he was "beaten by an out of control intoxicated female" and that "two independent witnesses both corroborated his version of events." He said Holden "beat him with a lamp, bit him on his side, and spit on him while Bow Wow continually made efforts to avoid her." Moss posted bail and was released Saturday.
