Juvenile Turns Himself In On Charges Of Beating Up Barber

Rapper accused of attacking haircutter, stealing $200.

Juvenile turned himself in to police on Tuesday in New Orleans, where he is accused of beating up and robbing a barber.

The rapper, whose real name is Terius Gray, was booked on simple battery and simple robbery charges and was released on bond. New Orleans police believe Gray got into an altercation with barber Bert Williams in May after accusing Williams of making and selling a bootleg recording of his music. During the heated discussion, Gray allegedly punched Williams, knocking him to the ground. While Williams was down, police said, Gray and two of his associates — who were not identified — stole $200 from Williams' pockets and fled.

Gray's attorney, Morton Fry, said the rapper maintains his innocence. "He looks forward to the day when he'll be vindicated. It's unfortunate that being a celebrity attracts allegations."

The New Orleans district attorney's office has yet to review and accept the charges. No court date has been set.
