EXCLUSIVE

0117-holmes-deongelo-mug-shot
Deongelo Holmes -- one half of the rap duo Ying Yang Twins -- was busted in Georgia ... after Holmes' wife accused him of punching her in the head.

Prosecutors say Holmes socked his wife Porsche Holmes in the head back in November ... and the rapper hit her so hard she got a big bump over her left eye.

Authorities charged Holmes with "family violence" and two counts of simple battery. Deongelo was released on bond after agreeing to stay away from his wife -- among other restrictions.

We reached out to a rep for Deongelo ... so far, no word back.

I'm missing something I think. Didn't the article say she got hit in the BACK of the head but had a lump above her LEFT EYE?!?! Does that mean he hit her and she bashed into something? I'm confused

So Reasonable    

Domestic Violence comes in all colors and all walks of life. It is not exclusive to a particular race or profession. You cannot take your hatred of others and allow it to permeate throughout each article you read. It makes no sense. Remember Sean Penn, Charlie Sheen, Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee and Mel Gibson have all been charged with Domestic Violence. Those individuals are neither African American or Rappers.
