BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Documents from the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office show that Webster Gradney Jr., also known as the rapper Webbie, has been charged with simple battery and simple robbery.

Webbie was arrested on September 12, 2012 around 2:30 a.m. He is accused of attacking a woman at the Chase Suites Hotel on Corporate Blvd. in Baton Rouge, kicking the woman down two flights of stairs and stealing $340 from her.

According to TMZ, a representative for Webbie says the rapper met the woman behind the accusations at a party Tuesday night, but also tells TMZ that he never attacked her, or stole her money.

The representative admits to TMZ that Webbie took money from the woman's purse, but insists the money was his and the woman in question had stolen it from him.

The representative also told TMZ that Webbie plans on fighting the accusations.

Webbie was released on a $9,000 bond.
