The incident occurred at about 3 a.m. at South Santa Fe Avenue and Bay Street in downtown Los Angeles, outside of Soho Warehouse, a members-only club, according to the LAPD.

TMZ reported that Ye is being investigated for an alleged misdemeanor battery, which carries a maximum jail sentence of six months.

Cuz that’s what happened right f****** now.”
