MIAMI – Officers arrested Aaquil Brown, better known as rapper Slim Jxmmi of the group Rae Sremmurd, on Tuesday in Miami.

Brown, 30, is facing a domestic violence battery charge in Miami-Dade County after officers responded to his 20th-floor apartment at the CANVAS condominium building, at 1600 NE 1st Ave.

A woman told police officers Brown had pulled her hair extensions from her scalp to stop her from grabbing their sleeping baby from a playpen.

According to the arrest form, the couple had been arguing over a woman he was following on Twitter when Brown left and told her he was going to the gym, but she suspected he had gone to a bar instead.

The woman said she recorded a video about what he had done and Brown fought for her phone, the arrest report said. She managed to send a video to a friend on Instagram before he got his hands on it and tossed it from the balcony, police said.

The phone wasn’t damaged; officers reported finding it on the west side of Northeast 17th Street and returned it to the woman.

Brown is half of the rap duo Rae Sremmurd with his brother, who performs under the name Swae Lee.
