Machine Gun Kelly’s crew members Brandon Allen and John Cappelletty have being arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery and causing substantial physical harm after beating up an actor Gabriel “G-Rod” Rodriguez in September of 2018.
The two men were arrested on Tuesday (Oct. 15) for beating up Rodriguez after he approached MGK at a bar and verbally accosted him for dissing Eminem’s family during their rap feud. “I’m gonna say it because it has to be said, you’re a pussy for going for family,” Rodriguez said in a video prior to the incident.
Rodriguez in a statement claimed that Machine Gun Kelly’s bodyguards followed him to the Hampton Inn across the street and assaulted him in the lobby.
The beating left the actor with multiple facial bruises. Rodriguez has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Machine Gun Kelly, but he says he will drop the charges if the rapper will agree to fight him in the octagon. “I will drop the lawsuit if we both sign waivers and meet in an octagon and go man-to-man without goons or weapons,” the actor said in a follow-up video.
Brandon Allen and John Cappelletty has both be released on bail after paying $2,000 each.
