Da Brat was arrested early Thursday after a dispute at a nightclub.

Witnesses told police the 33-year-old rapper, whose real name is Shawntae Harris, got into an argument with a waitress and later hit her over the head with a bottle of rum, Atlanta television station WSB reported.

Da Brat was booked into DeKalb County jail on a charge of aggravated assault, said a bonding agent at the jail.

According to Mekka Parish, a spokeswoman with the DeKalb County Police Department, witnesses told investigators the 24-year-old server "accidentally bumped" Da Brat as she walked through Studio 72's VIP lounge, and the two "engaged in a little scuffle of some pushing and arguing."

"The waitress walked away, and moments later Da Brat hit her in the face with a rum bottle," said Parish.
