Rae Sremmurd member Slim Jxmmi, whose real name is Aaquil Brown, was arrested on a battery charge in Miami this Tuesday.

Brown, 31, is accused of yanking his girlfriend's hair extension off, chasing her and hurling her phone from a balcony, law enforcement sources told TMZ.

However his girlfriend, with whom he shares an infant son, released a statement denying that Brown hit her and declaring: 'Dade County y'all are wrong for this.'

Brown was booked at 11:27am Tuesday into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center with a $1,500 bond, Pitchfork reported citing online records.  

The incident, which appears to have unfolded during the night, allegedly began as a verbal dispute between Brown and his girlfriend about a female Twitter user he followed, NBC 6 South Florida reports citing the arrest report. 

Brown's music producer was supposedly with him during the initial argument, and the two men then left the residence together, saying they were off to the gym.

A friend of Brown's girlfriend has allegedly said that she spied Brown and his producer drinking at a bar together after they left the apartment.

The arrest report then asserts that Brown came back to the residence smelling of drink, still in the company of his music producer, whereupon the spat escalated.

Brown's girlfriend purportedly tried to put their baby, who had already fallen asleep, to bed - but Brown then allegedly tore out her extension.

According to the arrest report, Brown then began pursuing his girlfriend through their home after she attempted to film him on her phone.

She is said to have stuffed the phone into her bra, from which Brown was allegedly struggling to grab it. The arrest report states her chest had scratch marks.

Further, the report asserts that at one point she tried to shut herself in the bedroom only for Brown to kick in the door.

Eventually he purportedly succeeded in seizing her phone and flinging it off the balcony, causing it to land in the street - where the police told TMZ they found it still in working condition.

The arrest report says that Brown was afraid the footage his girlfriend took would 'destroy his celebrity status' if it were made public.

Police arrived around 5am and booked Brown later that morning - but after his arrest his girlfriend issued a statement dramatically contradicting the arrest report.

'Oh wow. This is cap. Dade County y'all are wrong for this. I told you guys he did not hit me,' she wrote on social media. 

'Every officer you guys had in my face are wrong for this. No hands were put on anybody, I stated it more than once,' she insisted. 'It was a loud argument and the police were called. You guys turn nothing into something. It's our sons first birthday tomorrow, what's wrong with y'all?'

Brown is famous for forming part of the hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd with his brother Shaman Brown, who performs under the name Swae Lee.
