Afroman Punches Woman in Face During Concert (Video)

Rapper Afroman was charged with assault after he delivered a roundhouse punch to the face of a woman fan dancing next to him on the stage during a concert in Biloxi, Mississippi.

The 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Joseph Foreman and who is best known for his Grammy-nominated hit "Because I Got High," was arrested Tuesday night and his show show was canceled. The Associated Press reported Biloxi Police Chief John Miller as saying Foreman was later released after posting $330 bond.

A video posted online showed the woman holding a drink and dancing behind Foreman as he was playing guitar. He suddenly wheeled around and punched her, knocking her off her feet.

Foreman apologized on his Facebook page and later told TMZ that two women had been dancing on stage and a man had been heckling him throughout the show. He said he thought they had left the stage, and when someone bumped him, he thought it was the man.

"I thought it was that guy," he said.

Foreman said the early show during Mardi Gras gave him anxiety and he didn't have time to eat dinner and "medicate, get right."

"I had my frustrations to make a long story short," he told TMZ.

Chase Taylor, who owns Kress Live where the rapper was performing, said the concert was stopped.

"Afroman was about five songs into his set when the incident occurred. We pulled the plug on him, and security met him at the bottom of the stage to escort him outside, where he was taken into custody," Taylor said.
