TMZ first published the video on Tuesday. The surveillance video, from 2020, shows Saweetie take a jab at Quavo before he attempts to yank a video game console box out of her arms. Quavo eventually grabs Saweetie by the arm and pulls her into the elevator. The two hit the wall and fall to the ground, but Quavo gets up while Saweetie stays down. There was no sound included in the video.
It’s unclear if a criminal case will be brought against either Saweetie or Quavo, but the case is likely to be turned over to the City Attorney for review, TMZ reported.
Neither Saweetie nor Quavo has commented on the incident. They recently split over alleged infidelity.
