'American Idol' Contestant

Busted

8/12/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bad week for "American Idol" contestants ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ seventh season competitor Asia'h Epperson is currently in custody and has been booked after beating up a girl at a Hollywood nightclub.

According to sources, Epperson and another chick -- her sister -- kicked another clubgoer's butt inside Colony club.

Asiah Epperson and Too Short Video
We have video of Asia'h leaving the club with Too Short at 2:20 AM, just before she was cuffed and cheerfully taken away.

The victim complained of bruising and pain. Epperson is currently at the station.

UPDATE:  The alleged victim has now made a citizen's arrest and says she will press charges.  Asia'h will be transferred to a nearby jail soon.

UPDATE 7:20 AM: Asia'h has just been released from custody.

Umm Midnight....I am non of the above. Just doing my job (Chauffeur/designated driver/guardian angel) watching over my clients daughters. Seeing that my clients are intelligent enough to hire me, shows great responsibilty. If only Paris, Lindsay, Nicole, etc...had the hindsight to do this. They definitely could have afforded my services. They ended up paying a whole lot more in the end!!

This is sad because this girl's father was killed in a car accident a couple of days before her intial tryouts and she just missed the final cut. When will these people learn that once you name is/has been associated with American Idol that your life ceases to be your own?
