Dave East turned himself into police on this morning in NYC. TMZ reports that rapper has been charged with a misdemeanor assault for an alleged altercation that happened over the summer. His accuser is a 28-year-old man named Joel Rosario who says East of punched him in the face. Rosario he was leaving a cruise party near Pier 40 and walking along the marina of the Hudson River Park when he was struck in the face by the rapper.
Rosario claims the attack was completely unwarranted. He says hat he doesn’t have any idea why the rapper attacked him because the two apparently had no arguments or altercations while on the cruise. After the alleged incident he was traded for a gash above his left eye. Rosario also says didn’t even know who Dave East was at the time. Police were able to ID East after they investigated the incident. After turning himself in this morning he was charged and released shortly after. He is set to appear in court in December. East and Styles P are dropping a joint project called Beloved on Friday.
