Police Seek Joe Budden For Alleged Assault On Ex; Budden Taunts NYPD
The NYPD claims Budden forced the woman into his car outside a restaurant in Washington Heights last week. He then allegedly drove her back to his home in New Jersey and continued to beat her. There are also allegations that Budden stole the woman’s cell phone.
After news broke that the police was asking the public for help finding Budden, the No Love Lost rapper began tweeting messages directed at the NYPD. He even threatened to sue the department.
While Budden has tweeted that he is “on the run” from the NYPD, he has reportedly stated New Jersey police searched his home. A representative of the former Love and Hip Hop cast member issued a statement about the abuse allegations and his cooperation with the authorities.
Mr. Budden looks forward to an opportunity to responsibly deal with and address the allegations against him so he may establish the actual facts of the night in question. Mr. Budden has fully cooperated with the investigation. Mr. Budden asks for patience as the evidence and facts unfold to demonstrate the truth of his involvement and the real events that transpired on the night in question.
