The New York Police Department is currently investigating the allegations against Scott, 31. There are no official charges as of yet, and he has not been named a formal suspect.

An unnamed sound engineer at Club Nebula in mid-town Manhattan alleges Scott punched him in the face following a verbal argument shortly before 3:30 a.m. He claims the rapper also damaged a speaker and video screen in the nightclub.

Scott’s lawyer, Mitchell Schuster, did not deny the allegations, but called the incident a “misunderstanding” in a statement.

“While this is clearly a misunderstanding being blown out of proportion by clickbait and misinformation, we are actively working with the venue and law enforcement to resolve and set the record straight,” he said. “We are confident our client will be cleared of any wrongdoing.”

Scott was at Club Nebula to perform a DJ set at an afterparty following a concert by labelmate Don Toliver.

A spokesperson for Club Nebula, Ritchie Romero, backed Schuster’s statement and said the alleged incident between Scott and the sound engineer was exaggerated in media reports.

“This is blown completely out of proportion,” Romero told CNN. “It was a great night.”
