Joey Bada$$ Reportedly Arrested And Charged With Assault In Australia

The rapper was performing at a festival.

An incident at the Falls Music Festival in Australia reportedly resulted in the arrest of Joey Bada$$ over the weekend.

The rapper was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. He appeared in court on Saturday and was granted bail, but is due back on March 19.

The site is reporting that the Brooklyn rapper was headed to the stage for his set when he was stopped by a security guard who questioned his credentials. The security guard claims that the "Christ Conscious" MC then punched him in the nose.

The 19-year-old, though, while not directly addressing the incident, did allude to it on Twitter, encouraging people not to "believe everything you see or hear."

Joey's debut album, B4.DA.$$, is due out on January 20.
