HHNLive.com reports that Tony Yayo has been arrested, as the 14-year-old son of a music industry rival is charging the rapper assaulted him.
Additionally, 50 Cent and other members affiliated with G-Unit Records have been detained by New York authorities for their connection to the assault of Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond’s 14-year-old son. Yayo, 50 Cent and their entourage were returning from a brief trip to Africa when authorities apprehended them. Sources weren’t clear what charges, if any, have been levied on the men. 50 Cent, Yayo and others were taken to a precinct in downtown Manhattan to be identified by the teen, who will be accompanied by his mother. The police also questioned the men as well for statements on the alleged assault.
The alleged assault happened on Tuesday (Mar. 20), as Rosemond’s 14-year-old son left school on the way to an internship with his father’s Czar Entertainment, an entertainment-based record label/management firm. According to sources close to Czar, 50 Cent and Tony Yayo were leaving the offices of Violator Management and saw the boy walking down the street, wearing a Czar Entertainment T-shirt. They were apparently unaware that the teen was Rosemond’s son. According to sources, Yayo backhanded the teen then screamed profane words towards Czar Entertainment.
