The Grammy-nominated artist was taken into custody shortly after 5 a.m. following a citizen's arrest by the alleged victim, a police source told the Daily News.
According to TMZ.com, Cole went to visit her rumored boyfriend, Birdman — the wealthy founder of Cash Money Records — and went berserk when she found another woman at the location.
Cole, 32, allegedly attacked the other woman, leaving scratches all over her face, TMZ reported.
Birdman, whose real name is Bryan Williams, built his fortune working with top acts including Drake, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj.
Reps for the 45-year-old producer and Cole had no immediate comment.
