Santiago, of New York, was arrested early Sunday after police said he caused a disruption at a Fatburger by yelling at another customer, ripping up a bouquet of flowers and throwing a drink at a customer.
Authorities said the rapper punched a man in the face, and yelled "Do you know who I am?" The man received a cut on the left side of his face, a police report said.
Santiago was charged with misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct. He was taken to the Miami-Dade county jail and released.
It was not immediately clear whether he had a lawyer. A woman who identified herself as Shavala at the rapper's management agency in New York said she was not aware of the arrest and refused to comment.
