The Times-Picayune just released some additional details about the domestic dispute that Galette was allegedly involved in. According to the Kenner Police Department, a 22-year-old woman called police after Galette and his cousin Terrance Banks allegedly assaulted her. The woman—who claims that she is Galette's assistant—told investigators that she woke Galette up this morning to ask him for money for a taxi. According to her, Galette then woke Banks up and told him to take care of her. He refused, though, and all three started arguing. The woman says their argument then became physical and ended with Galette and Banks taking her and her belongings outside and telling her to leave. She reportedly had a torn earlobe and scratches on her when police arrived a short time later.
