February 18, 2015

BILOXI, Mississippi (AP) — Rapper Afroman has been arrested for simple assault after police say he punched a female fan on stage during a concert in Biloxi.

Afroman, who is best known for his hit “Because I Got High,” was arrested Tuesday night and his show was canceled.

The 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Joseph Foreman, was released by Biloxi police after posting $330 bond.

The rapper’s representative says in a statement Afroman didn’t know if the fan was a man or a woman and just reacted to someone being on the stage.

Afroman apologized on his Facebook page Wednesday and says he is accepting full responsibility for his actions.
