TMZ is reporting that the arrest happened on Saturday night, and Rashid was held for 5 hours before posting $50,000 bail.

Details are scarce, but insiders say Jermaine called the cops after Rashid bit his leg hard enough to draw blood.

Though Jackson has mostly stayed away from the spotlight in the years following the death of Michael Jackson, his bizarre personal life has made tabloid headlines on several occasions.

Back in 2012, the tabloid media alleged an affair between Jackson and Whitney Houston.

Prior to that Jackson's son, Jaafar, was accused of using a stun gun on his cousin Blanket. The charges were later dropped.

It remains to be seen if Rashad will be prosecuted, but since felony assault charges were filed against her, Jermaine probably won't be able to withdraw his complaint, even if he wants to.

Neither party has spoken publicly about the case yet.

Rashad and Jackson have been married since 2004, and they appeared together in an episode of Celebrity Wife Swap last year. They have no children together.

We'll have updates on this story as more information becomes available.
