On Wednesday, Casanova was indicted on charges of robbery and coercion over an altercation that occurred at a diner in New York City.
Back in August, according to the Blast, a woman named Niya Rucker said she was attacked by the “Don’t Run” rapper and his accomplice, Bobby Williams, after a verbal dispute over her cell phone turned physical.
Rucker said the rapper and his crew thought she’d been taking videos of them eating. But, according to her, she was just taking a picture of her meal to post on Instagram.
In the incident, Rucker said Casanova approached her and grabbed her phone to delete the video, before his alleged accomplice put her in a sleeper hold until she lost consciousness. She said she was then punched by the rapper and another female acquaintance.
Though Casanova denied putting his hands on the woman and accused her of lying for media attention and financial gain, he turned himself into officials to cooperate.
Now, in the wake of the legal battle, the rapper has been indicted for his alleged involvement in the incident. According to the blast, Casanova has been indicted on robbery charges for taking the woman’s phone and coercion for instilling fear into the victim. Meanwhile, Williams has been charged with strangulation for the headlock.
Casanova is currently out on bail, due back in court in two months.
