Grammy-nominated rapper Afroman was arrested in Biloxi yesterday (Feb. 17) after he punched a female fan in the face while performing on stage.

UPDATE: Afroman has issued an official apology on TMZ Live.

Afroman—real name Joseph Foreman—was playing his guitar during his performance at Kress Live in Biloxi, MS. A female fan is seen dancing around near Foreman on stage, and as she moved closer to him during his guitar solo he unloaded a haymaker uppercut, knocking the female to the ground.

A male patron is seen hopping a barricade and climbing on stage to come to the woman's defense in video posted to Facebook.

The "Because I Got High" rapper continued to perform until the music cut and the house lights came on. According to reports, the female victim made a citizen's arrest and Foreman was arrested and charged with misdemeanor simple assault, quickly bonding out after paying $330 cash.

Chase Taylor, the venue's owner, said that Kress Live does not condone this type of behavior and works toward providing a safe environment for their patrons.

Afroman was about five songs into his set when the incident occurred. We pulled the plug on him, and security met him at the bottom of the stage to escort him outside, where he was taken into custody.

A rep for Afroman claimed his Grammy-nominated artist didn't know the fan's gender and that security did a poor job keeping people off the stage—this according to a statement given to Billboard,

This was a completely involuntary reflex reaction to people infringing on his stage space. It was uncharacteristic behavior that was initiated by outside uncontrolled forces.

In his own words via his official Facebook page, Afroman's explanation was a lot simpler.
