BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office says Baton Rouge rapper Torrence Hatch, better known as Lil Boosie, was arrested Wednesday on aggravated second-degree battery charges stemming from an alleged fight at his house on April 12th.

Sheriff's officials say when Boosie and a few others showed up at the house, there was some sort of a confrontation about a man stealing one of Boosie's necklaces.

Reportedly, that's when a fight broke out. Fists and possibly even a vase were used in the fight.

One man was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
