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."

To Len;

You make a very valid point. I never see Brad Pitt (or any other white guy with out of wedlock kids) referred to as Angelina's baby daddy.

Mr. Marley seems to be a gentle soul who doesn't go around looking for trouble and conducts himself with more grace and dignity than the sons of famous men. He walks with kings but does not lose the common touch. For a brawl to have even started there must have been aggregious behavior on the part of the others in question. GREAT POINTS about references to "babydaddy" not being an issue if it is a white celebrity. But Rohan Marley doesn't play the race card either. He simply stated, "It went too far." Finally, there is no mention of his acheivements beyond being father to Lauryn's children or son of Bob. HE IS A BUSINESSMAN IN HIS OWN RIGHT. If we're going to mention details about his life - let's not leave out mention of MARLEY COFFEE and the good works he is doing every day for the farmers of Jamaica and for the planet by promoting ORGANIC SUSTAINABLE FARMING. Oh and before that, he played pro-football. No more selective reporting please, TMZ. You (and your ignorant readers) are part of the problem.
