The site reports that the 24-year-old woman whom he allegedly brutalized called 911 in Chicago on Wednesday, claiming she and Omari were in the middle of a verbal dispute when he “pushed her to the ground several times.” She claims that, as a result of the alleged violence, she suffered bruises to her neck and chest.

The police reportedly arrived on the scene at around 2:30 p.m. and arrested Omari on the spot after observing her injuries.

The actor was booked for misdemeanor domestic battery.
