Police officials said the room was supposed to be empty so the housekeeper could begin cleaning. 

Police said the rapper told Thigpen to get the housekeeper out of the room. Police said that's when Thigpen assaulted the housekeeper, striking her in the face.

A physical altercation continued into the hallway before the hotel employee ran downstairs to get help, according to investigators.
