Rohan Marley:

I Got Maced

and Chokeholded!

12/20/2010 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rohan Marley, one of Bob Marley's many children, was maced and put in a headlock by an off-duty cop working at Voyeur on Saturday night -- and Rohan tells TMZ he plans on pressing charges.

Our photog only caught a couple of seconds of what went down (literally, you'll probably have to replay a few times). But a source tells us Marley -- who baby daddied five kids with Lauryn Hill -- mistook someone outside the club as a valet, and that person took offense.

We're told Marley and the guy traded words and eventually fought. Sources say an off-duty cop who works at the club maced all involved - eventually putting Marley in the chokehold.

Marley tells TMZ he was simply defending himself and feels the off-duty cop "went overboard." He says he'll look into pressing charges because he "can't just let this go."

What the hell is with TMZ and they're classless reporting? Why not just put **** pictures on peoples pictures like Perez Hilton?

I'm sure if it was a white guy (which I am) you wouldn't use the term "babby daddied". That's just passive aggressive racism. Don't try and hide your feelings, be like the people who comment here and be openly racist.

You're wrong. TMZ doesn't discriminate. They say the same things about all daddies. Get a life. I live out in the white suburbs and everyone uses that phrase, especially when the parents aren't married. It's just reality now. Nothing wrong with being a baby daddy! Most of us do it.

Guess this cop doesn't get enough bullying done in his regular job and needs to moonlight to get his fill. Somewhere somehow there has to be some rule about moonlighting policeman or unauthorized use of a weapon (mace)(he was not on duty)that can see this jerk off the force and up the river. That said, Marley and the other guy (the off duty cop too) should keep their hands in their pockets if they need to measure their d icks.

You obviously don't read TMZ very often. They definatly don't reserve the term baby daddy for black people.

Where are all the feminist at when these hollywood twerps have their breast (real or fake) hanging out. Doesn't this make women more of a sexual object instead of being taken more seriously in our society. Don't complain about how society sees you if you aren't going to stand up and let the world know how degrading this is to women.

The only thing I am upset with Rohan about is that he was choked out by only 1 (One) guy! Normally the cowards have to gang up on you, and call for 30 back up officers before they get the ballz to do anything. He should have knocked him clean on his azz before he even got the chance to choke or anything else. Kudos to this police officer though, he is of a RARE breed normally Police are cowards until they can out number their victim. I salute him for handling the situation solo, or MAYBE he snuck up on Rohan, from the looks of the things he had to be BEHIND him to administer one such a choke hold! Which in itself is a cowardly move. Who knows... Sue the hell out of them, there is a public office that hunts police officers down, go in and make a complaint people, no need to give them any reason to touch you, the pen is mightier than the sword. REPORT THEM! Trust me it works! These are brainwashed, poorly educated, goons that are paid by YOU the people. Fear not!

This off duty cop is out of order. Sue is white ass. he had no right to put Marley in a choke hold. He was not a active Cop. These cops are out of control. To all the white A Holes who are making racist comments you bunch of douches bags. White Americans are so racist. American the once great nation is going down fast.

I hope he sues and wins against the ANIMAL that decided it was O.K to chokehold him and mace anyone without good reason. I cannot stand people abusing thier powers.
