Da Brat Lucky She Is Not Facing Murder Charges


In what could have been much worse, Da Brat (Shawntae Harris) was arrested in Atlanta at a nightclub owned by Jermaine Dupri and charged with aggravated assault.

Officers arrived at Studio 72 at about 1:20am responding to a call about a "pushing incident."

The police report indicates Harris and a 24-year-old waitress at the club got into a squabble after the waitress bumped into her. At some point, the waitress walked away and moments later was hit in the face with the bottle of rum.

The report said the waitress, who sustained a deep laceration to the cheek and some swelling on the forehead, was driven to a hospital by a friend.

If the bottle had been just a little heavier, or hit an inch or two the other way, it is possible that the waitress could have been killed. It is unclear why Harris and the waitress were arguing, but one witness said it may have been that the waitress rejected Harris' advances and Harris became upset.
Harris was the first female rapper to have a platinum-selling album.

She has appeared on VH1 reality shows Celebrity Fit Club and The Surreal Life.

Once a thug, always a thug. As the rapping industry has shown us multiple times, money cant buy class.

That's a really disgusting thing to glass someone in the face. What, does DaBrat thing she's a hooligan in England or something?
