According to the Madison PD, the woman claims the incident went down after the rapper -- real name Joseph Cartagena -- performed at a concert at The Orpheum Theater last night.

Cops say the woman claims, "shortly after the concert had concluded ... [the woman] found herself inside of a Cadillac Limousine with Joseph Cartagena and other male subjects all with the destination of a hotel located on Madison's west side."

Cops tell TMZ Fat Joe was detained for questioning -- but he was not arrested. He was released this morning -- sometime before 7 AM.

So far, no arrests have been made and police tell us the investigation is ongoing.

She "found" herself in a limo on the say to the hotel with a bunch of men. Hmmmm, here's a thought: Don't get in a limo with a bunch of men you don't know who are on their way to a hotel. Just a thought.

Fat Joe is FAR FAR from a platinum selling rapper . She picked the wrong guy to pin a sex case on for $$ . His last album sold 11,000 copies according to wikipedia .

How do you "find yourself" in a limo with a bunch of dudes? Did you sleepwalk up into that piece? And once the found out you was crazy as hell they probably put you out on the side of the road.
