Southern rapper Torrence "Lil Boosie" Hatch was reportedly arrested Wednesday (April 22) night on aggravated second degree battery charges.
The arrest stemmed from a physical altercation which allegedly took place at his Louisiana home on April 12.
Sheriff's officials say when Boosie and a few others showed up at the house, there was some sort of a confrontation about a man stealing one of Boosie's necklaces. We're told that's when a fight broke out. Fists and possibly even a vase were used in the fight. One man was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. (WAFB News)
Boosie was also arrested last fall for alleged possession of drugs, weapons and resisting an officer in his homestate.
He approached deputies in his Dodge Challenger while on the road in East Baton Rouge Parish around 4 p.m. on Wednesday (October 22). Claiming there was a scent of marijuana coming from the vehicle, authorities reportedly approached Boosie who, in turn, refused to step out of his car and then proceeded to drive away. Stopping him from escaping, Boosie was then arrested by deputies and placed into Parish Prison on counts of marijuana possession, possession of a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance and attempting to run from law enforcement.

Aside from legal woes, Boosie has shown support for his community including his recent Easter Bash event.
Young Jeezy made a surprise appearance at Lil Boosie's Easter Bash on Sunday in Baton Rouge, La. The rappers served food, participated in an Easter egg hunt, and gave away bikes and Nintendo DSs to underprivileged kids and their families. (Rap-Up)
Boosie has had rap success, most notably his hit single "Wipe Me Down (Remix)" Ft. Foxx and Webbie.
Trill Entertainment worked a deal with the Warner Bros.-associated Asylum, and both Webbie and Boosie were now on a major label. Webbie released his album in 2005; Boosie's landed in 2006. Titled Bad Azz, the release featured Yung Joc, Pimp C, and Webbie as guests. (All Music)
No information on Boosie's current status has yet been released to the press.
