Over the weekend, news broke that Charles Hamilton was arrested earlier this month for an assault charge. XXLMag.com just got off the phone with a clerk of the courts at Cayuga County, located in Cleveland, Ohio, where the New York rapper was handcuffed, to find out details on the case.
According to the police report, Hamilton was arrested on Friday, December 10 in downtown Cleveland. The troubled XXL Freshman alum was apparently causing a commotion in the area and police from the fourth district were called. Once they addressed Hamilton, he swung at two of the officers and had to be subdued before being arrested. Once in custody, he was charged with felony assault. He is currently in Cleveland’s county jail. He has yet to be indicted on the charges and as of press time, Hamilton’s public defender has yet to return phone calls for comment.
Charles has had a disturbing year. He was treated in mental hospital and even spent time in a wheelchair for what he desribed as “sharp pains in his right leg.” During a live interview with XXLMag.com in August, as part of our weekly UStream show, Spotlight, Hamilton spoke on his hospital stay. “Honestly I can say I was in the hospital for a broken heart,” he shared.
