50 Cent associate Dwayne McKenzie was reportedly arrested Thursday (August 20) afternoon in Connecticut for allegedly assaulting a woman at the rapper's mansion.
The report alleged McKenzie and female associate Michelle Krzykowski attacked a woman on Fif's property.
The woman alleged that at some point in the fight, McKenzie held her to the ground and she was able to pepper spray her assailants, Tyler said. McKenzie and the 29-year-old victim were not dating, police said. McKenzie was taken into custody Thursday afternoon after New Britain police pulled him over in his 2006 BMW for not wearing a seat belt. He was issued a verbal warning and held for Farmington police. Krzykowski turned herself in to Farmington police late Thursday. Both were charged with second-degree assault, conspiracy to commit second-degree assault and second-degree breach of peace. McKenzie was also charged with first-degree unlawful restraint. The pair was released after posting court-set bond. McKenzie is scheduled to appear in Hartford Superior Court Tuesday.

The victim reportedly contacted local authorities upon being assaulted.
"The woman called 911 from the side of the road some distance away," Lt. William Tyler said. "She said a man and a woman at the Poplar Hill Drive address allegedly attacked her and she was struck in the head with an unknown object and had a head injury and other lacerations." (Statement)
A woman previously filed a $15,000 lawsuit against McKenzie claiming she was allegedly assaulted while attending a party at the G-Unit leader's Connecticut mansion last year.
Shana Chin says she was hit with a belt and choked by McKenzie, a 27-year-old employee of 50 Cent, last May after a party. She says the encounter left her face, thigh and back bruised. McKenzie was arrested shortly after the incident. (Courant)
The charges are still under investigation and will likely be examined later in the year.
McKenzie was arrested by Farmington police after a woman he had been dating reported he choked her on the rapper?s property. McKenzie had completed a required family violence education program and was expecting to have those charges dismissed early next year, his attorney Gerald Klein said. Klein also represented McKenzie in a 2007 gun case where he was accused of firing a weapon in a Hartford club. (The Herald)
