Webbie Arrested for Allegedly Holding Girlfriend Captive and Beating Her
Webbie, whose real name is Webster Gradney, Jr., has been arrested in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on domestic abuse charges Wednesday (July 5).
According to local news station WVLA, Webbie and his entourage held his live-in girlfriend against her will at a Comfort Inn for two hours. Authorities say the victim told them Webbie physically abused her with a closed fist, an open hand and a belt. Officers assisting the victim noted visible welts on her thighs and back as well as "multiple hematomas on the victim's head, along with many other abrasions, lacerations and bruising consistent with abuse."
Authorities say according to the victim, Webbie had been doing cocaine for two days without sleeping and took her phone from her. The victim says this is not the first time that Webbie abused her but this is the first time she reported it. Webbie was previously arrested in 2012 for battery and robbery, when he allegedly kicked a woman down two flights of stairs.
Webbie was booked on charges of domestic abuse by strangulation, false imprisonment, second-degree battery, theft, and simple criminal damage to property.
