Juvenile Arrested

Miami melee leaves Juvenile with two felony charges

March 29, 2001 12:00 AM ET

Cash Money rapper Juvenile, born Terius Gray, was arrested in Miami early Wednesday morning for allegedly hitting a man in the head with a bottle of champagne.

According a police report, several off-duty police officers were trying to break up a number of skirmishes just outside the Club Improv. The fighting apparently began when Juvenile got into an argument with twenty-eight-year-old Jackson Saint Ange inside the club. Upon leaving the venue, the rapper allegedly struck Saint Ange with a bottle of Moet. The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated and released. The report claims that upon the arrival of the officers, Juvenile grabbed Miami Police Sgt. Timothy Fell yelling, "Take me to jail. Take my motherfuckin' ass to jail." Another officer pulled him off of Fell and Juvenile fled, but was quickly apprehended.

The twenty-six-year-old MC was charged with aggravated battery with a bottle, battery of a law enforcement officer, two counts of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence. Juvenile was released on $17,000 bail and will be arraigned at an April 18th hearing in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
