New York rapper Dave East has turned himself into law enforcement. Reports claim the hip-hop artist is accused of attacking a 28-year-old man in the Big Apple over the summer.
According to reports, East surrendered to cops Tuesday (October 2) and received a misdemeanor assault charge for assaulting alleged victim Joel Rosario in July while leaving a cruise.
Rosario claims he had no arguments or altercations with East on the cruise and has no idea why he was attacked. He was treated for a laceration above his left eye.
Our sources say Rosario didn’t even know who East was — police only ID’d the rapper after investigating the incident. East was charged and released. He’s due back in court in December. (TMZ)
The rapper’s legal muscle has since issued a statement addressing the situation.
We reached out to East’s attorney, Stacey Richman, who tells TMZ … “We appeared as requested at the police precinct and we look forward to reviewing the criminal court complaint and investigating. My client is an absolute gentleman.” (TMZ)
