Los Angeles detectives are investigating Jonathan Lyndale Kirk (DaBaby) for assault with a deadly weapon after he was filmed fighting at a California bowling alley this morning. A video posted by a witness to the event appears to show Kirk and his crew dragging Brandon Curiel (rapper Brandon Bill$) — the brother of Kirk's ex-girlfriend, Danielle Leigh Curiel (singer DaniLeigh) — across several bowling lanes, striking him repeatedly. TMZ reported on the fight this morning, and The FADER has since confirmed details of the investigation.
The fight broke out at Corbin Bowl on Ventura Boulevard in Tarzana, CA. According to LAPD Officer Drake Madison, police responded around 1:20 this morning to a radio call for an AD battery (assault with a deadly weapon). Mr. Curiel returned to the scene close to 3:30 a.m., and while he refused medical attention, his injuries did not appear to be serious. Madison could not confirm why the deadly weapon charge was added to the battery, although TMZ speculated it might have been due to Kirk and the other suspects kicking Curiel while he was on the ground.
Since the event, both Curiel siblings have made and deleted social media posts condemning DaBaby's crew for allegedly attacking Bills five to one. "Lame as hell!!!!" DaniLeigh wrote on her Instagram story. "Running up on my brother on some slippery ass floors ... Lame and soooo sad!!!!”
The FADER has reached out to representatives of DaBaby for further comment.
