Love & Hip Hop: Miami star Christopher Harty, known as “The Fresh Prince of South Beach” on the show, was arrested on a domestic violence charge on October 17, 2022. The 32-year-old allegedly beat up his girlfriend and stole $7,000 from her. This is his second arrest for domestic violence in less than two years.

Harty is facing charges of battery, domestic violence by strangulation, and attempted robbery by sudden snatching according to reports from Radar Online. He was taken into custody at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami-Dade County. His bond was set at $5,000, according to reports made by WSNV mentioned in reporter Sheldon Fox’s tweet.

“The Fresh Prince of South Beach” was previously arrested in August of 2021 for another domestic violence charge. He faced multiple charges including battery and kidnapping, after allegedly punching his girlfriend. He was granted a $25,000 bond.

According to the arrest report, in that case, Harty’s girlfriend planned to drop his shoes off at his apartment. After the woman tossed Harty his shoes, he allegedly grabbed her, slammed her to the ground, and punched her in the mouth. He allegedly dragged her by the hair and tried to prevent her from leaving his apartment. She eventually escaped and ran to an elevator. The woman suffered scratches and bruises according to the arrest report.

Harty also made headlines in 2020 when he sued Canadian rapper Tory Lanez over two alleged incidents, according to reports from Radar Online. According to the lawsuit, Lanez “verbally antagonized” and attempted to start an argument with Harty on November 8, 2019, at the LIV nightclub.

Harty claimed Lanez punched him and Lanez’s security guard assaulted him. Harty also claimed he was assaulted by an employee of Lanez’s at a different nightclub about a year later. Harty is seeking unspecified damages. Lanez claimed he acted in self-defense in the later incident.

Harty first appeared as “The Fresh Prince of South Beach” on Love & Hip Hop: Miami in 2018. His storyline included his party-boy lifestyle, as well as his relationship and business. He remained on the show for two seasons before leaving to continuing making rap music.
