Fat Joe: Accused of Sexual Assault

Posted Wednesday June 23, 2010 4:16 PM GMT

Looking to have landed himself in a troubling situation, Fat Joe was brought in for police questioning related to an alleged sexual assault in Wisconsin over the past weekend.

The hip-hop star and his crew are accused of groping a female fan following a concert in Madison on Sunday, though he was not charged and released after speaking with authorities.

According to NYDN reports, the 33-year-old accuser tells that she was invited into a Cadillac limo by Fat Joe and "at least one other man" - with plans to head back to their hotel.

The alleged victim ended up calling police at 12:45AM, telling that she was "inappropriately touched" during the course of the limo ride.

Denying any such actions, Fat Joe's lawyer, Dawn Florio, tells, "Rapper Joseph Cartagena, known as Fat Joe, members of his entourage and security staff were briefly questioned by members of the Madison, Wisconsin, Police Department who were investigating false allegations made by a woman who initially posed as a fan and later claimed to be the victim of an assault after demanding money. At no point did Mr. Cartagena or any member of his entourage assault or have any improper contact with the woman. It is truly unfortunate that false allegations such as these cause the public to doubt the claims of actual victims of sexual assaults."

Police tell that they are still looking into the matter at the current time.
