BOW Wow was arrested early on Saturday in Atlanta for allegedly assaulting a woman. A rep for the 31-year-old rapper, whose real name is Shad Moss, had no immediate comment about the incident when reached by E! News.

An Atlanta police spokesperson told E! News that around 4:15 a.m., police answered a call about a dispute and spoke with a woman named Leslie Holden, who told them Bow Wow assaulted her.

The spokesperson said that the rapper told police that Holden assaulted him. She too has not commented on the incident.

Both he and the women had visible minor injuries.

"Officers were unable to determine the primary aggressor of the altercation, so both parties were charged with battery," the police spokesperson said.

Both were transported to the same jail and charged with misdemeanor battery, after which a judge set their bail at $8,000 each.

The incident remains under investigation.

Bow Wow grew up in Columbus, Ohio and now lives in Atlanta, where he films Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta. He was discovered by Snoop Dogg and used to go by the alias Lil' Bow Wow.
