    A rising Hispanic rapper is facing a battery charge in Miami after a fight in an elevator that left another man bloodied, authorities said.

    Kevin Fret, 25, was arrested Tuesday on an aggravated battery charge, according to an arrest report.

    According to the report, Fret was involved in a verbal dispute with another man and as the man tried to run away, Fret threw a metal bottle at his head, which caused a small laceration.

    Fret is a well known gay rapper from Puerto Rico. He has a large social media following and now lives in Miami. But in court Thursday, Miami-Dade Judge Mindy Glazer wasn’t aware of his musical endeavors.

    "Do you work or do you attend school?" Glazer asked.

    "I’ve come from Massachusetts four months ago and I’m seeking employment," Fret replied in Spanish.

    Glazer said there was probable cause for a lesser charge of simple battery and gave Fret a bond of $1,500. She also appointed a public defender and ordered him to stay away from the alleged victim.
