Rod Wave was booked into jail on a felony charge of battery by strangulation just over a week ago and now, reports say he allegedly choked her ex-girlfriend until she couldn’t breathe while their kids were present. According to the reports, the incident happened on April 24 while their two children were in the home.
The Tampa Bay Times has the details.
An arrest warrant that became publicly available this week in the case against St. Petersburg rapper Rod Wave accuses him of choking his ex-girlfriend while their two children were in the home.
The rapper, whose real name is Rodarius Marcell Green, 23, faces a felony charge of domestic battery by strangulation in connection with the incident, which occurred April 24, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.
Deputies responded to the Osceola County woman’s home that day after receiving two 911 calls in which the woman said Green had entered her home and become physically aggressive with her.
The woman, whose name is redacted in court records, told Osceola deputies she had been asleep in her bed when she heard the front door open and Green entered her bedroom. He choked her until she couldn’t breathe, according to his arrest affidavit, and accused her of talking to other men. He then left her home in his sport utility vehicle, according to the affidavit.
Green came back a second time and accused the woman of taking his cellphone, deputies said. He kicked storage shelves near the front door and grabbed two photos off the wall, throwing them on the front porch and sidewalk, court records said. He then drove off.
The woman told deputies she had dated Green for about four years and they had two children together. The children were in their own bedroom when the incident occurred, she said.
The victim had a scratch located “near the left center of her neck,” the arrest affidavit said. She declined medical assistance. Law enforcement took photos of her injuries and conducted a check of the area, but could not find Green.
Rod Wave’s people are yet to comment on the incident and his arrest.
