Producer Detail Arrested on 15 Sexual Assault Charges
Grammy-winning producer Detail, who has produced hits for Beyoncé and Lil Wayne, is facing more than a dozen charges of sexual assault.
The 41-year-old producer, whose real name is Noel Christopher Fisher, has been charged with 15 counts of sexual assault and five additional counts of felony assault. He was arrested Wednesday by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and is being investigated for crimes that occurred between 2010 and 2018.
Detectives submitted the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for review in January. They were notified in late July of the charges filed against Fisher and a felony arrest warrant was issued with a bail of $6.29 million.

“Mr. Fisher was just arrested some hours ago and I have not had an opportunity to speak to him or look at the charges,” his attorney, Irwin Mark Bledstein, told The Associated Press. “I am quite certain he will enter a not guilty plea and contest to the fullest all of these allegations.”
Detail won a Grammy in 2015 for co-writing Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love” featuring JAY-Z. He has also produced hits for Lil Wayne, Future, Wiz Khalifa, Nicki Minaj, and Jennifer Lopez.
In 2019, a model and aspiring singer alleged that Detail raped and abused her and was awarded $15 million in Los Angeles Superior Court. Two former assistants have also filed lawsuits, including one who claims she was forcefully held against her will while the producer masturbated and demanded she pose for nude videos and photos.
Detectives believe there may be additional potential victims and they are asking the public’s help to identify any such victims. Anyone with information should call the Special Victims Bureau tip line at (877) 710-5273.
