At around 2:21 a.m. Sunday, McDowell got into a verbal altercation with an employee in front of SL Lounge in Chamblee, Ga., according to the report filed by the Chamblee Police Department.

McDowell later got into an argument with police officers, who struggled to subdue McDowell, according to the report.
