Three members of Machine Gun Kelly's crew are wanted in Georgia for the alleged assault of actor Gabriel "G-Rod" Rodriguez. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a judge issued battery warrants for Brandon "SlimXX" Allen, John Cappellety and Lamar Reed for their alleged role in the brawl.

The messy exchange began at a Twin Peaks restaurant in Atlanta on Sept. 13 when Rodriguez approached Kelly and said, "I'm gonna say it because it has to be said: You're a pussy for going after family." (Watch video of the confrontation below, via TMZ.) Rodriguez's comment was in reference to Kelly's 2012 tweet regarding Eminem's daughter, Hailie.

G-Rod was kicked out of the restaurant after the skirmish. The reported physical altercation took place later in the night, when members of MGK's entourage were allegedly waiting for Rodriguez outside their tour bus as he made his way into the Buckhead Hampton Inn. The group jumped Rodriguez in the hotel lobby, leaving him bloodied and bruised following the brawl, where he was then rushed to the emergency room for his injuries.

Kelly is currently not a suspect and won't be charged with any crimes, says TMZ. Check out G-Rod's video that prompted the brawl and surveillance footage captured from the fight below.
