The fight took place around 1:30 am on March 28 in a lounge in the town of Cavo. The next day, Dues visited the Atlanta Police Department to personally file a report and identified Buckles as the person who “jumped” a table at the club and “grabbed my wig” and “pulled me down.”

RadarOnline.com has obtained an explosive video of Dues reporting her version of events to an officer. “I feel like I’m being set up,” she said.

Dues was getting food with some friends, she said, when she saw “the girl who I think set me up.”

The person then reportedly disappeared and ten minutes later Buckles came “round the corner” wearing “a baseball cap” and a sweat suit.

Dues said Buckles “tried to pressure me, but I told her no one does all that today, like no, I don’t do that here.”

“She says to me, ‘Come on,’ and I don’t know who it is because I don’t have my glasses on. So I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?'” she recalled.

At that point, Dues said, “It finally dawned on me, and I told her, ‘We’re not doing that, go ahead, knock it off,’ and she jumped over the table, grabbed my wig and pulled me over downstairs. “

“I can’t see anything, all I know is: my hair is in my face, I’m trying to get up, a man is pulling me, I don’t even know who’s pulling us, but it’s on video like Good .”

Dues suffered “cuts on her feet, bruises on her knee, leg and ankles,” as well as “a busted lip” and a “knot on her arm,” police said in their report.

An investigator contacted Mariah the Scientist, who said that “she went with the club owner to talk to the victim,” and claimed Dues “threw a drink at her.”

“Then a friend who was with the victim swung at her and missed, so she grabbed the victim and the friend and the table broke and they all landed on the floor,” the suspect said, according to the police report.

“Buckles was the guilty party,” the officer wrote, adding that the club owner “didn’t tell me anything that would lead me to believe otherwise.”

A witness also alleged that Buckles “hit” her “two or three times while grabbing her and the victim and pulling them to the ground, causing the table to break,” and denied that Dues threw anything.

The singer posted $5,000 bail and was released from jail the same day after her arrest.
