Chance the Rapper’s bodyguard was arrested in Chicago on Thursday (Aug. 3) after he allegedly body slammed a man.

According to TMZ, 44-year-old Star Thomas was seen in surveillance slamming a man in the lobby of Chicago’s W Hotel.

The alleged victim was trying to get into an elevator that Chance and his entourage had already entered at around 9 p.m., but the bodyguard blocked his entry. Two hours later, Chance’s crew ran into the same man in the lobby and this is when the bodyguard picked him up and slammed him.

Thomas was arrested and booked on misdemeanor simple battery.

Chance has not commented on the arrest.
