Fox Carolina reports that rapper Juvenile was involved in an altercation at a Waffle House on Pelham Road in Greenville, South Carolina.
From their report (emphasis added):
A witness told FOX Carolina Juvenile entered the Waffle House restaurant on Pelham Road on Friday night. According to reports, a man in the restaurant said, “Juvenile is here, I guess the hoes are coming.”
Juvenile, who was with his wife, reportedly thought the man had insulted her and became angry.
The witness said Juvenile’s security team pulled him out of the restaurant but he came back in. When the man stood up, Juvenile punched him in the face before his friends joined in the attack, according to the witness.
A waitress at the restaurant reportedly grabbed the sink hose and sprayed down the whole group.
The report indicates that by the time local law enforcement arrived the “scene had cleared.”
Waffle House isn’t the sole scene of Juvenile’s crimes
Juvenile is 41 years old. His real name is Terius Gray and he was born in New Orleans.
He has been involved in hip hop as a rapper since 1991. Gray has also had a limited acting career.
Juvenile’s legal history dates back to at least 2002, when he was charged with assaulting his barber. He suspected the barber of bootlegging his music. Since then, he has been arrested on drug charges and performed community service for being involved in a fight outside a club. In 2010, he received probation after being charged with possession of marijuana. He also was charged with simple possession and speeding in New Orleans in 2011.
Juvenile also is a deadbeat dad.
In 2004, Joy Deleston filed a paternity lawsuit against him. Both parties agreed that he was the father after a DNA test. The lawsuit contended Juvenile was not paying child support for his daughter Jelani. In 2008, Joy Deleston, Jelani, and another of Joy’s children were murdered by Joy’s 17 year old son. Juvenile received criticism for not attending the funeral, but indicated that he didn’t want to be a distraction.
In 2012, a warrant was issued for Juvenile’s arrest for failure to pay child support to Dionne Williams, reportedly the mother of his teenage son. A judge ruled that he could avoid arrest and 90 days in jail if he paid $50,000 immediately.
