The son of former Roc-A-Fella records music mogul, Damon â€śDameâ€ť Dash, was arrested Tuesday for strangling his girlfriend in Chelsea, authorities said.
Damon Dash II, 22, was charged with misdemeanor assault and strangulation for allegedly squeezing his girlfriendâ€™s neck as they argued on Sept. 22 in his West 16th Street apartment.
â€śThey had an apparent dispute over sex,â€ť a law enforcement source told The Post of Dash-the-younger and his girlfriend.
â€śShe was visiting him at his apartment, he got violent with her, starts to punch her, slap her and shove her onto the bed, got on top of her, he grabs her by the throat and chokes her,â€ť the source said.
They briefly reconciled but then had another fight, at which point the victim called the cops, the source said.
Dash climbed on top of her and â€śplaced both of [his] hands around [her] neck and squeezed tightly,â€ť to the point where she had trouble breathing, according to the misdemeanor complaint against him.
At his arraignment on Wednesday, Dash signed an order of protection barring him from any contact with his alleged victim. He was released without bail.
â€śHe did get physically violent with her,â€ť the source added. â€śShe suffered bruises, a black eye and a cut lip.â€ť Her neck was left with red marks, the complaint alleges.
