Damuer Leffridge, a representative for J-Boog, has spoken out about the former B2K member's arrest for domestic violence this week.
Leffridge, who is chief of operations of Boog's Popular Records, said no violence took place.
"Me and Boog are like four or five streets apart," Leffridge said in an interview. "We're like the only black dudes in the neighborhood, amongst a lot of wealthy Caucasian people. And they don't want to hear all that loud music and stuff. Jarell and them, they keep up a lot of noise -- this just the truth. And when him and her were screaming on each other on a Sunday afternoon, talking crazy, one of the neighbors decided to call the police. The reality is, the police came and they couldn't get in the security gate. So they chose to jump the gate. Boog doesn't always pay attention to the buzzer, so he doesn't know when people are outside sometimes. So police was outside for a while trying to get his attention. The police said that if [Boog and his girlfriend] hadn't been so hostile they would have let them stayed, but because they were both screaming they chose to break them up and take him instead of taking her."

Fomer B2K member Lil Fizz revealed how the singer's girlfriend reacted after the arrest.
"His girl called me after the incident happened, and she didn't know what to do," Fizz added. "She didn't even know where the phone call to the police came from. So she was like, 'Can you get over here ASAP, they just took him, they just arrested him, we just had an argument. I don't know what happened. They trying to say it was domestic violence but he didn't put any hands on me or anything.'" (VIBE)
Reports of the arrest spread online Monday (January 4) evening.
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)
Speculation suggested the victim was 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)
