According to Pitchfork, the 28-year-old singer was detained in Lake Worth, Fla. after having an argument with his girlfriend of one year.
Documents show that Pitts plead "not guilty" on May 4. This led to a "plea and pass" agreement granted on July 13, which says that he must now comply with a court-mandated program until April 2013 in order for the charges to be dismissed, even though he doesn't have to admit guilt.
"The victim stated on today's date, Pitts and herself returned from an evening out. An argument pursued because she called a friend, stating she might need a place to stay. Pitts went into the bathroom and stated he was going to harm himself. When she knocked on the door, Pitts came out, they went into the bedroom, and the arguing continued," court documents revealed.
"The victim stated Pitts grabbed her and flipped her over her shoulder, he then pinned her down by climbing on top of her. The defendant then proceeded to shove his fingers inside of her mouth. In return, she attempted to bite him and he pushed his fingers away. He continued to press his weight against her so she bit him on his chest. The victim stated this has occurred before. She told Pitts on numerous occasions she was going to call the police, but he just laughed. Advised she is not trying to ruin his life."
Pitts claims that he did not hurt his girlfriend. Spinner has contacted the singer's representative and they offer no comment on the legal case at this time.
