Da Brat Won’t Go To Trial For Alleged Pistol-Whipping

Rapper to perform community service, serve year's probation, pay fine.

Da Brat won’t go to trial for allegedly assaulting a woman in an Atlanta nightclub last year.

In an agreement approved Monday, the rapper must perform 80 hours of community service, serve a year’s probation and pay a $1,000 fine stemming from the March 2000 altercation.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Da Brat (born Shawntae Harris) pleaded guilty to misdemeanor reckless conduct. In May 2000, a judge ordered her to stand trial for a felony charge of aggravated assault for allegedly pistol-whipping a woman at the Chili Peppers night club in the city’s Buckhead district. The fight allegedly broke out during an argument between Da Brat and the woman, Rezue Robateue, who was trying to gain access to the VIP area of the popular club (see “Da Brat Arrested For Battery In Club Incident” ).
