As we previously reported, Rosello was taken into custody on Jan. 6 after being accused of slapping and kicking his girlfriend during an alleged domestic dispute at an apartment in Miami, Florida.

A spokesperson for the Miami-Dade Police Department told Page Six at the time that a verbal argument had ensued between the pair after Rosello and his girlfriend of three months – who was not named in the outlet's story – arrived back home following a night out together.

According to the police report of the incident, the woman told Rosello she wanted to stay at her mother's place instead, which allegedly "upset" him a great deal.

The girlfriend told cops that Rosello soon got physical with her, allegedly placing his hand on her neck and pushing her backward. She claimed she slapped his hand away to relieve the pressure on her neck.

Rosello then allegedly "proceeded to knee the victim in her crotch area, causing her to fall down to the ground," stated the report. "[Rosello] then kicked the victim once while she was on the ground."

The woman said she tried to escape by running out the front door, but Rosello allegedly "grabbed [her] by her arm and pulled her back inside of the apartment."

She claimed she tried to flee a second time while yelling and screaming. The noise apparently caught the attention of a neighbor, who was listed in the police report as a witness to the incident.

The witness told officers they saw Rosello "pull the victim inside of the apartment as she was trying to free herself from his grip."

The neighbor then brought the girlfriend into their apartment and called 9-1-1.
