Rapper Jamal Gravy Woolard, who was chosen to act as rapper Notorious B.I.G. in the biopic Notorious, is actually like Biggie when it comes to the law, according to E! Online.

Woolard was arrested on September 14 and charged with misdemeanor assault, menacing and harassment, allegedly from a fight with his wife, Trina Younger.

The New York Post reported Woolard had slapped Younger in their East New York home during an argument because he came home late.

The police report states: Younger dared her husband of seven months to hit her, and he did, allegedly saying, She wouldn't stop pushing me, so I snuffed her.

I know he wouldn't hit her. He's not like that. Most definitely, they have a good relationship. That's impossible. I think it's made up, said Roslyn Younger, Woolard's mother-in-law.

The couple is to appear in court on January 29.
