10/23/2007 5:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A city councilman and self-proclaimed associate of rapper Juvenile has been arrested in Jeffersontown, Ky. for allegedly raping a woman in his hotel room.

According to the police report, John Cantey, Jr. was arrested after the an incident at the local Marriott Hotel. An unidentified woman told police she declined to have sex with Cantey, and he subsequently raped her. The alleged victim was able to identify him as her attacker, and gave cops the business card she said he had given her.

WLKY reports that Cantey is a City Councilman in Lumberton, N.C. and is listed as the CEO of JC Houseman Productions, a talent firm. Cantey's MySpace page is wallpapered with images of Juvenile, and says he's a booking agent for "top artists," but does not specifically name any of his "clients." It also says his income is $250,000 per year or more.

Jeffersontown Police Chief Rick Sanders said Cantey traveled with Juvenile, who was in town for a concert Saturday.

26. Gee, Like am I surprised at this? NOOOOO these guys are a bunch of thugs with no values, no morality, nothing but trash so it's no surprise that rape comes into the picture, rap is crap and its the crap of society that is in that business, it is the downfall of this country and of our black youth.... the churches and community leaders need to get off their ass and start saying enough is enough and change the course for the community, cause it aint gonna change itself and Uncle Sam aint going to do it.

-Maybe you should think before you type 'cause you obviously don't know what you talkin' about hun. John Cantey Jr. is a Lumberton City Councilman. He is not a "thug". As a citizen of Lumberton, N.C. I can say that this man is great and that I don't believe he did this. Of course, I don't know but think about it, why would anyone give their business card to someone they are going to rape. Also, John Cantey is Juvenile's road manager, he sets up hotels and other accomidations for Juvenile.
