A representative of Joey Bada$$ issues a statement in the artist’s arrest in Australia. “There was a misunderstanding with security at the Byron Falls Festival show, which resulted in charges being laid by NSW Police. After fully cooperating with Police, Joey was granted bail and entered a plea of not guilty to the charge.” Let’s hope the ‘misunderstanding’ will lead to charges being dropped and no delay in his album.

Joey also takes to Twitter to release his own personal statement, followed up with a search of a party, in Australia. Check it out in the gallery.

Wait….what? Joey BadA$$ gets arrested in Australia for breaking security guard’s nose?? Looks like Brooklyn emcee Joey Bada$$ was involved in a bit of an altercation while performing in Australia. Reports suggested he broke the nose of a security guard working the event? Get details inside.

Did the security guard say something terribly wrong?? It appears so, because sources are saying that after a security guard for the event Joey Bada$$ was performing at, asked him for I.D. Joey apparently decked the worker, and in by doing so broke the poor guy’s nose. Not sure yet what prompted him to do so, but the security guard was treated for face injuries at a local hospital. While Joey was carted off the jail, and spent the night in police custody. Wonder what prompted the altercation? Developing…..
