It wasn't a good trip down under for Joey Bada$$
who found himself behind bars after assaulting a security guard backstage. The rapper who was in Australia to perform at the Falls Festival punched the guard in the face after he tried to stop Bada$$ backstage.
According to reports, the guard didn't recognize Bada$$ and was following protocol to stop unauthorized individuals, when his face met Bada$$' fist. The guard was left with a broken nose, while Bada$$ continued on-stage to perform.
Bada$$ was arrested after the show, taken to jail for the night, and released on bail the following morning. While he's scheduled to continue touring Australia this week, he will have to be back in court March 19th.
In his defense, Bada$$ took to Twitter to let fans know they shouldn't believe everything they hear.
Bada$$' debut studio album, B4.DA.$$
, is set to drop January 20th.
