Brandon Allen (L) and John Cappelletty (R) are both charged with battery in connection to a fight with stunt actor Gabriel "G-Rod" Rodriguez.

ATLANTA — Two suspects - reportedly members of rapper Machine Gun Kelly's crew - are in custody nearly a month after they allegedly attacked actor G-Rod.

According to an Atlanta Police report from Sept. 14, officers went to the Hampton Inn hotel off Piedmont Road around 2 a.m. that morning after getting reports of a fight. 

That's where officers spoke with Gabriel Rodriguez, known for stunts in TV and movies, according to IMDb.

According to the police report, Rodriguez told officers he was "jumped and assaulted" by four men after getting into an argument with rapper Machine Gun Kelly at a restaurant across the street. 

Rodriguez told police that the rapper's crew got "loud and irate and were acting like they wanted to fight him." He told police the rapper and his crew were kicked out of the restaurant, and he left to go back to the hotel shortly after.

When he got across the street to his hotel, Rodriguez told police he noticed Machine Gun Kelly and his crew on their tour bus, which was sitting in the driveway of the hotel. 

According to the report, Rodriguez said he and the rapper's crew got into another argument, and the four men ran off of the tour bus, chased him into the hotel and assaulted him in the hotel lobby.

Police spoke to a witness - part of Machine Gun Kelly's crew - who told officers that Rodriguez was the one who instigated the fight, the report said. He said once Rodriguez got back to the hotel from the restaurant, he started to pick a fight and taunt the crew that was on the tour bus.

The witness said Rodriguez was saying things like "I'm at fighter too" and "I'll beat all of you one by one," according to the report. Police said that's when the four men approached Rodriguez and assaulted him. None of the rapper's crew were at the scene by the time police arrived.

Police said video footage from the hotel showed Rodriguez being chased into the hotel lobby and assaulted. Police said the video shows one of the men - reportedly Machine Gun Kelly's personal body guard - pick Rodriguez up off of his feet and body slammed him down to the ground. Once on the ground, the others began kicking and punching Rodriguez. 

Police were not able to catch the suspects that night. But more than a month later, authorities announced they arrested Allen and Cappelletty on Oct. 15 in connection to the fight and charged them both with misdemeanor battery. Both were taken to the Fulton County Jail.
