Rich Homie Quan Surrenders to Police in Miami [VIDEO]
Rapper Rich Homie Quan surrendered to police in Miami on Wednesday (April 9) just weeks after he allegedly attacked a security guard who denied him entrance into LIV nightclub.
The 25-year-old rhymer didn’t have anything to say to reporters who were waiting for him outside of the police station. Quan, whose real name is Dequantes Lamar, is facing a misdemeanor charge of simple battery, according to NBC News 6.
As we previously reported, the “Lifestyle” rhymer is being accused of punching security guard Christian Cajigas after he was denied entrance in to the club because it was filled to capacity. “I’m Rich Homie Quan, and I’m a rich millionaire, (expletive),” he allegedly yelled before he punched Cajigas right in the nose. His entourage reportedly followed that up with a vicious beatdown. Afterward, Quan and his crew made their escape in a nearby speedboat.
Cajigas has filed a civil lawsuit against the Atlanta native. He claims the attack has left him disfigured and in extreme physical pain.
Quan’s attorney, Rick Corona, denies that his client assaulted Cajigas and said his civil suit is about money.
"There's a civil suit that's been filed, it's all about monetary gain, taking advantage of a celebrity and that's the whole situation,” Corona told NBC 6 News. “That's why we're here and the truth will come out. Our client is innocent and the truth will come out...our client did not throw any punches and the truth will come out."
Rich Homie Quan maintains his innocence and said he was on the boat the entire time.
