Raz B just got off scott free after he was arrested for allegedly strangling his girlfriend. Find out what he has to say about his actions and more inside...

Raz B is a free man after he was arrested Wednesday morning (May 1st) for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.

The B2K singer (real name De'Mario Thornton) was arrested for domestic assault by strangulation after he and his girlfriend, Kallee Brookes (above), got into a heated argument on the ramp of a Macy's store in Minneapolis.

According to TMZ, the Hennepin County Attorney's Office decided not to move forward with charging the singer because they didn't feel there was enough evidence to successfully prosecute the singer after a thorough investigation.

Cops spoke with Raz's girlfriend, witnesses, and analyzed surveillance video from the scene, but they didn't see enough evidence to prosecute. You'll recall, Raz made claims he was defending himself as his girlfriend attacked him.

 

 

Raz's girlfriend wasn't the one to call the cops. She told a family member and someone ended up calling the police on Raz. We wonder if she down played the incident to police when they interviewed her. The picture atop is of Raz and Kallee during happier times at the LA premiere of HBO's Documentary Film "United Skates" in February.

Due to being in jail, Raz missed Wednesday's night "Millennium Tour" stop in Minneapolis. The singer addressed the situation via a statement made by The Hues Company. In the statement, it said Raz "takes full responsibility for his actions" and he'll be taking the necessary steps to become a better man.

“The incident comes after a long history of publicly documented trauma for the musician, and difficulties coping with its aftermath,” it continued. “Raz B takes full responsibility for his actions. The incident represents a turning point after years of isolation, repressed emotions, and unhealthy coping mechanisms in response to childhood trauma. He intends to seek treatment to become a better man, and grow beyond the pain of his worse mistakes.”

He also asked for "support and privacy" as he goes through this trying time.  He offered up an apology to his family, fans and his B2K band mates.
