British rapper Mark Morrison has been arrested after a nightclub fight, in which he claims he was attacked and received "several facial wounds".

The RETURN OF THE MACK star, 32, was arrested by police when he became "agitated" following a scuffle at Leicester, England's AFTER DARK club on Saturday night (31JUL04) after his expensive pendant was stolen.

A police spokesperson says, "A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault and affray.

"He's been released on police bail pending further enquiries."

Morrison made a counter allegation against his alleged attacker after his release on Sunday (01AUG04) morning.

The police add, "We are investigating an allegation of assault and robbery on a 32-year-old man."

The snatched neck piece was custom made to mark his new record deal with 2 WIKID RECORDS.

A $36,000 (GBP20,000) reward for the return of the pendant has been offered.

Record boss and soccer star KEVIN CAMPBELL explains, "Mark should be wearing it in all his promotional activities which is why we want it back.

"Obviously, we are all happy that Mark is reasonably OK - it could have been much worse - but the pendant is not much good to anyone as it is. It is too unique."
