Security called LAPD and placed the suspect under [private person’s] arrest for battery.”
Abraham posted a video of the arrest to her Instagram account, and in the caption, she wrote that she was the incident was a “complete setup.”
“I’ve had a very traumatizing year and I don’t deserve to be attacked, bruised, men on me, and battered. As a single mother to be harassed, battered, and conspired against as a paying customer @grandmaster_recorders should fire their management and security for all contributing to attacking 1 person out of 3 people.”
According to People, Abraham was released not long after being taken into custody.
In a statement to TMZ, she later shared, “I’m tired of being maliciously battered, attacked, conspired against while having dinner at Grand Master Records, this was a private person’s arrest my lawyer is handling from here. It is terrifying and traumatizing that people attack me and I can not even enjoy dinner as I’m the only person out of 3 attacked and harassed when. I look forward to court as always, warning this place is a danger to public figures.”
