The rapper told cops Howard punched him right in the face and then, after he fell, kicked him while he was lying on the ground.
The singer reportedly fell down after pulling a groin muscle. He later went to the hospital to get checked out and was released with only minor injuries.
Surveillance video from the casino is said to show Howard throwing the first punch. Authorities said the suspect was taken into custody, charged with battery and then released.
