Lil Boosie is now being sued for his role in a mall altercation that led to his arrest last year.
As The Blast first reported, Boosie filed a lawsuit against Dillard’s department store, the Edgewater Mall and the Biloxi Police Department over an April 2017 incident where he ended getting pepper sprayed.
Now the security guard involved in the incident has filed a lawsuit against Boosie.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Glen Kerley says he was working as a security guard for Dillard's department store on the day he claims Boosie assaulted and battered him.
Kerley claims Boosie and his crew were being kicked out of the mall when they attempted to enter the store. The security guard says he tried to escort them to the exit when they became combative and refused to obey the directions.
He says Boosie tried to provoke him a fight and Kerley was forced to use pepper spray to diffuse the situation. But that didn't last long as Kerley claims the group began to repeatedly punch him. Kerley says he did not strike Boosie or attempt to fight back.
Eventually, Kerley says he was able to get Lil Boosie outside and when he tried to arrest him, he claims the rapper attacked him, knocked him down and hit and kicked him repeatedly. Kerley claims he was dragged across the cement during the attack and was eventually taken to the hospital.
Kerley is suing Boosie for assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, civil conspiracy and negligence. The suit is seeking unspecified damages.
The city of Biloxi has denied all allegations of wrongdoing and demanded his suit be thrown out.
In their response, they revealed the rapper was arrested in December over the incident.
