‘Straight Outta Compton’ star Jason Mitchell has been accused of brutally attacking a young woman at a hotel in Boston, according to a new report. Jason and the unnamed woman allegedly tussled so hard that she called the police on the actor! Click through for the gory details.
Police were reportedly called to The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Boston on the night of Monday August 1, according to TMZ, after a woman claimed that a man assaulted her. The unnamed woman, 18, allegedly identified her assailant has Jason Mitchell; a police report obtained by the site says that he grabbed her roughly by the arms, and threw her to the ground by her hair. He allegedly called her a bitch and ran away. Whoa.
Apparently, the incident occurred when the woman tried to crash a party at the fancy hotel that the Straight Outta Compton star, 29, was attending, a source told TMZ. The woman allegedly got turned away from the party and got upset; witnesses at the bash said that she actually attacked Jason first! The report states that guests in the hotel could hear her screaming in the hallways.
Jason was not arrested for the alleged assault, but police are still looking to speak to the actor about the serious incident. Because of the assault that happened on hotel property, The Ritz-Carlton Boston has banned Jason from their grounds. It’s unclear if Jason was actually staying at the hotel, or if he was just there for the party. But he was definitely in Boston, having been spotted at a local bar previous to the incident.
Jason starred as rapper Eazy-E in the NWA biopic, which was one of the most well-received films of 2015, as you may recall, it was snubbed at the Oscars despite this.
