Pleasure P Arrested For Battery After Altercation With Fast Food Employee, He Maintains His Innocence: They Threw Food At Me! [VIDEO]
Pleasure P (real name, Marcus Cooper) may be the lead singer of R&B bad boys, Pretty Ricky, but his recent incident at a Miami fast food joint was anything but pretty. The 35-year-old singer was arrested on a battery charge yesterday (3/6/20) after a verbal altercation with a Checkers worker turned violent.
According to reports, the fast food employee says Pleasure P repeatedly yelled at her through the drive-through intercom system, and upon approaching the window:
“…continued to yell louder and become more disrespectful.”
According to her account of the incident, he paid for his food, and after accepting it – pushed her in the chest with it. Police were called, and Pleasure insists he threw the food, but not at the female fast food worker. The officer’s report read:
“While the defendant was speaking to me his person was emitting a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage. I continued my investigation and saw food all over the floor near the drive through window and several employees who corroborated the testimony of the victim.”
Pleasure P was arrested, booked, and later released. However, the early 2000s star explained to his social media following that he was wrongfully arrested:
“@pleasurep moving forward we are definitely gonna look into revealing the truth in this situation. This will not go the way they think this is gonna go. I was wrongfully arrested, instead of checkers having better customer service and correcting my order. food was Thrown at me and the staff was very disrespectful. I asked for a refund and she refused to refund me. Like anybody i became upset but not to the point where i got physical with anyone. I think me being in my position, i should have just let her keep the 60 dollars even tho my order wasn’t correct. But hey you live and you learn. Action will be taken on this employee, the officer who wrongfully arrested me will be investigated and my lawyers will be in contact with @checkersrallys Get your tickets to the millennium tour and go get that new pretty ricky single body! Have a blessed day”
Yikes! Will this incident affect The Millennium Tour for Pretty Ricky?
