Maino Arrest Pornstar Assault

From: NY Post

Cops arrested a rapper Thursday morning for allegedly beating up a porn star outside a Meatpacking District nightclub early Tuesday.

Hip-hop star Maino, whose real name is Jermaine Coleman, turned himself into the 6th Precinct at 9:30 a.m. where he was arrested for misdemeanor assault.

The altercation began when skin-flick diva Mellanie Monroe was inside Maino’s truck outside of the Griffin around 3 a.m. and claims he punched her in the stomach and ribs and kicked her in the leg, according to police.

Cops at the scene helped her out of the vehicle and Monroe left on foot. Maino’s truck also drove away in the same direction, according to sources.

At the corner of Washington and Gansevoort streets, she saw his vehicle and threw a hair brush at it, the source said.

The dueling duo began fighting again, but this time Maino stayed inside his vehicle, while his security stood by with a Champagne bottle, the porn star told police.

Monroe then began tussling with his security guard and tried to snatch the Champagne bottle. The two fell to the ground causing the curvy blond to hit her head, she told police.

Maino’s reps said he was at the hotspot celebrating the recording of “King of Brooklyn Part 2,” when “a loud, belligerent young lady, whom he did not know, was escorted from Maino’s presence.”

The reps said he at no point had any physical contact with the actress.

Maino, best known for the 2009 hit “All The Above,” has had previous brushes with the law. He was arrested in New York in 2013 for driving his Bentley around without a front license plate and with a suspended license, according to media reports.

He also served a 10-year stint in prison for kidnapping and robbing a drug dealer, TMZ reported.

He’s expected to be arraigned on the misdemeanor assault rap Thursday night in Manhattan Criminal Court.
