HollywoodLife.com spoke to a retired NYPD officer, who tells us whether or not Solange will be put behind bars for attacking Jay Z on May 5! HollywoodLifers, do you think that Solange should go to jail?
Solange Knowles, 27, could she be going to jail? The 27-year-old shocked the world with her violent assault on Jay Z, in an elevator at The Standard Hotel. Now HollywoodLife.com has learned whether all that pummeling and kicking could result in some serious charges against her!
Solange Knowles — Will She Be Charged With Assault?
There has been speculation that Solange could wind up in jail for attacking her big sister, Beyonce‘s, hubby. Even though we’ve learned that Solange was simply defending her sister after Jay Z upset Solange for his “too close” relationship with fashion designer, Rachel Roy, she could be charged with disorderly conduct and attempted assault in the third degree.
“It happened in a public place,” retired NYPD officer, William J. Cox tells us. “So she could definitely be charged with disorderly conduct. She could also be charged with attempted assaulted in the third degree, strictly because she has no weapon. [Purse can not be considered a weapon.] It would definitely fall under harassment, because she is obviously harassing an individual strictly based on her mannerisms toward Jay Z.”
But William goes on to say that the chances of her being charged with assault is highly unlikely.
“She can not be charged by the NYPD for harassment or assault unless Jay Z, Beyonce, or the bodyguard press charges themselves,” he says. “The only thing she can be charged with by the NYPD is a public nuisance. Nobody else was subjected to her actions. If she came off of the elevator and continued to cause a scene in the lobby of the hotel and caused people to become alarmed, she could be charged with public nuisance AND disorderly conduct — an additional charge.”
Liv — Rapper/Model Claims Jay Z Hit On Her Infront Of Solange

“I told you the day Jay Z and I exchanged numbers (at Nobu Miami), Solange came walking up out of no where!” she told us. “I thought I was about to get my ass beat myself so I backed off quickly … She has been guarding her sister’s property since day one. Bey doesn’t even have to say anything. Solange is a beast.”
