R&B singer Mariah the Scientist, born Mariah Amani Buckles, was arrested on March 28 in Atlanta and faces battery charges stemming from an alleged altercation at Cavo Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge, according to Atlanta Police Department records.

The arrest gained traction online Wednesday after Buckles' mugshot reportedly from that date circulated on social media.

Cleopatra Dues, the alleged victim, told police Buckles forcibly removed her wig and dragged her across the floor, resulting in minor scratches on her feet. Dues claimed she had no prior interaction with Buckles and alleged the attack was unprovoked.

Police have not confirmed the authenticity of videos circulating on social media that purport to capture the altercation.

Buckles, a successful Atlanta-born artist, balanced academic pursuits with a passion for music. After attending St. John's University in New York on a biology scholarship, she opted for a full-time music career. Her 2018 debut EP, "To Die For," garnered recognition and led to a record deal with Canadian rapper Tory Lanez's label, One Umbrella, in collaboration with RCA Records.

Buckles has since released studio albums like "Master" and "Ry Ry World." In 2023, she signed with Epic Records and released her latest album, "To Be Eaten Alive," which charted on the Billboard 200.

Buckles' attorney has not yet responded to a request for comment on the charges.
