An off-duty police officer was on-hand to break up the fight before anybody was hurt.

Speaking with TMZ, Lil Scrappy proclaimed that his involvement was in self-defense as his girlfriend was being harassed by Rogers before the man put his hands on Scrappy.

"He was calling my girlfriend names and then put his hands on me ... so I had to lay them paws on him," Scrappy told TMZ.

According to a statement released by Lil Scrappy's lawyer, Mawuli Mel Davis, there is video evidence that exists that will exonerate Lil Scrappy and verify his version of the story.
