Shawntae Harrie aka Da Brat was charged with aggravated assault according to DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Mekka Parish.

Officers answered a call to Studio 72 at 1:20 a.m. about a "brief pushing sort of thing," Parish said.

Police couldn't say whether the nightclub is the one that Jermaine Dupri opened earlier this year, but the street address is the same. Club owners couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

The police report indicates Harris and a 24-year-old waitress at the club got into a squabble after the waitress bumped into her. At some point, the waitress walked away and moments later was hit in the face with the bottle of rum.

According to the police spokeswoman the waitress, who sustained a deep laceration to the cheek and some swelling on the forehead, was driven to a hospital by a friend.

Harris' address is listed as Chicago. It wasn't known why she was in the Atlanta area.

Harris was the first female rapper to have a platinum-selling album. She has appeared on VH1 reality shows "Celebrity Fit Club" and "The Surreal Life."
