Da Brat’s Going to Da Jail

By: Betsy Waldman / August 22, 2008

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that rapper and Mariah Carey sidekick Da Brat (real name Shawntae Harris) was sentenced to three years in prison today for striking a club waitress in the face with a rum bottle in 2007.

Harris reportedly attacked during a Halloween party at Atlanta’s Studio 72 nightclub and caused the victim permanent facial damage.

This wasn’t Da Brat’s first brush with the law when it comes to her temper.

In 2000, she was charged with beating a woman with a gun (!!!) in a dispute over VIP seating at another Atlanta club. Da Brat’s a pimp! With anger issues!

Harris was also sentenced to seven years probation, and 200 hours of community service.

Never to wait on Da Brat’s table. She’s a little grouchy.
