Bounty Killer Arrested for Suspicion of Assault

A Jamaican dancehall star with a history of run-ins with the law has been arrested again.

Police Superintendent Altermoth Campbell says a badly bruised woman alleged that Bounty Killer beat her Saturday (Sept. 18) night at his apartment in St. Andrew, Jamaica.

The rapper's lawyer did not immediately return a call for comment.

Known offstage as Rodney Price, Bounty Killer was already facing charges of firearm possession, marijuana possession and unlawful wounding and assault.

He is best known for the album "My Xperience" and for his collaboration on the song "Hey Baby" with U.S. pop band No Doubt.
