YK Osiris has been arrested on aggravated assault by strangulation charges, Fulton County jail records show.

According to the Fulton County Sheriff's Office, Osiris, born Osiris Williams, was booked on Monday (Nov. 4) for the felony charge stemming from an incident that took place back on Sept. 7. 

A police report obtained by TMZ provided alleged further details of the arrest. Osiris was reportedly involved in an altercation with his girlfriend at his birthday party in September. She allegedly confronted the "Worth It" singer after finding a photo of another woman in just a towel on his phone. 

The dispute reportedly escalated following a shouting match to the point things eventually got physical. His girlfriend allegedly claims that he bit her under her left eye and proceeded to choke her. She then reportedly admitted to biting his lip to get him off of her, and the bathroom incident was soon defused.

The Def Jam signee, 21, has been denied bond and reportedly has a hearing set for later in November. 

Billboard has reached out to YK's reps for comment.
