Police Report:

Nicki's Asst. Struck Minaj w/ Suitcase

7/13/2011 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the police report describing the hotel altercation between Nicki Minaj and a man, in which she claimed he struck her in the face with a suitcase ... and Dallas cops tell us the alleged attacker is Nicki's assistant Safaree Samuels.


TMZ broke the story ... Nicki and Samuels were arguing at a hotel pool in Dallas Monday night and took it upstairs to the room.

According to the police report, Nicki followed Samuels up to the room they were sharing, to make sure he didn't take any of her stuff.  Nicki was in the room looking into her suitcase, which had some of Samuels' belongings, when she says he "grabbed the suitcase and as he was picking it up, he shoved the suitcase across [Nicki's] chin and lower lip."

The police report goes on:  "[Nicki's] teeth struck the inside of her lower lip, causing the inside of the lower lip to cut and start to bleed."

According to the report, a paramedic arrived on scene, but Nicki decided she didn't want to press charges so the case was closed.

That doesn't sound like a serious assault. More like in the heat of the argument gave her a shove with the suitcase as a way to get her to back off and accidentally popped her in the mouth. Obviously he should be responsible for any injuries, but I see it differently than if he intentionally hauled off and punched her in the face.

There's no way blood comes out of Nicki's face. It's all plastic and collegen.

My impression of this woman is that she is tough and likes to intimidate. Having said that, no one should be assaulted--man or woman.

Now...this is interesting as well. I just made a comment; not 10 minutes the original story included that it was her assistant and gave his name. The second story that was up...ommitted his name and that he was her assistant; but simply "a man". have an ammended headline and the story up; once again including his name and that he was her assistant....what gives? Why all the changing?

Perhaps you guys should wait to publish a story....until you are absolutely sure about it...because the changes make TMZ look like you are not confident in what you are publishing.

Nicki has since tweeted "I had my lips around a Hot Pocket, it was ( sausage and cheese ) and it was lava hot. It burned my lip, I fell into the suitcase and then yelled out "somebody help me, I bit into a hot pocket and bit my lip" alas no one was there to help her, she called 911 and in her frantic state proclaimed to have been attacked by Foxy Brown, Who in reality is Saffaree Samuels. Fame is sick and twisted. I would still hit that, there aint no better girl in the game right now with a body like that- she has talent from head to toe if you get me wink. I just want to pour Chef-Boy' R Dee all over her and take pictures.

Sounds more like an argument in which someone was accidently hit in the face with a suitcase. The police by law can't allow someone else to decide whether to press charges in the case of physical assault can they?

Nicki needs to stop protecting this douche bag. If this guy is throwing suitcases at her she needs to prosecute his ass. Tired of women making excuses for losers like this and what Rihanna did for Chris Brown (until the photos leaked)

Who really cares. In the end she doesn't want her biz out. Would you? bitch can't piss without people lookin up her puss hole. like 4real just leave it alone. yea she says its her assistant. Even if it is her man she hasn't wanted people to know who she dating since she dropped. He obviously couldn't of done 2much damage or she wouldn't be in concert n ****. let it be. all that matters is she o.k. what's the point of arguing whether it tru or not. let the bitch breathe. it aint like the same **** that happen to RiRi happen to her. one hit is enough but its her biz. let her be damn. #ItzBaRbieHOE
