B2K's Jarell "J-Boog" Houston was reportedly arrested on a domestic violence charge at his California home yesterday after neighbors heard a dispute taking place.

According to reports, the arrest took place Monday afternoon.

J-Boog from B2K -- aka Jarell Damonte Houston -- was arrested for domestic violence at his L.A. home yesterday -- TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us Boog was arrested late afternoon for "corporal punishment on a spouse" as well as for outstanding warrants relating to an allegedly bad driving record. (TMZ)

Additional details suggest shouting took place from his home prior to the arrest.

Neighbors told the site that they heard screaming in the house earlier in the day. When police finally showed, 6 or 7 squad cars came. At press time, it was unclear who J-Boog was charged with assaulting. (Baller Status)

Speculation has begun to hint at the victim being his child's mother.

When the police were called, the showed up 6 or 7 squad cars deep. J-Boog isn't known to be seeing anyone besides the mother of his child, so we assume this is the women in question. WOW, First Teddy Riley, now this... 2010 must be the year that R&B dudes get their BEATDOWN on.... (Dime Wars)

Before breaking up, B2K had a popular buzz around the early 2000's.
