Maino arrested after altercation with porn star

On Thursday,  Oct. 23, Brooklyn, New York-based rapper Maino turned himself into police and was arrested for misdemeanor assault after an altercation earlier in the week involving porn star Mellanie Monroe outside a Manhattan nightclub.

According to reports, the rift between Maino and Monroe started shortly after 3 a.m. in his truck outside The Griffin nightclub. Monroe alleges that Maino kicked her in the leg and punched her in the ribs. After police were called and the pair were separated to take statements, Monroe walked away from the scene while Maino drove away, but the two apparently went in the same direction.

Minutes later upon seeing Maino’s truck on the corner of Washington and Gansevoort, Monroe reportedly threw a brush at the truck, which set off a second scuffle between the two. The porn starlet then got into an altercation with Maino’s bodyguard, who appeared on the scene and stepped between the two to diffuse the situation. During the tussle, Monroe and the bodyguard tumbled to the ground resulting in Monroe’s head hitting the concrete, although she was not seriously injured.

Maino, who released his 2008 street anthem “Hi Hater” after serving 10 years in prison for robbery and kidnapping, denies having any physical contact with Monroe.
