Rapper Juan Luis Morera Luna, better known as Wisin of the popular reggaeton duo Wisin y Yandel, was arrested at his home in Cayey, Puerto Rico, for assaulting his father.

According to a police report, the altercation stemmed from an argument the father-son pair had over the roosters they bred for cockfights. After the alleged assault, Wisin's dad, 62-year-old Luis Morera, was taken to Menonita hospital in Cayey, where he was treated for various physical traumas.

A few hours after being arrested, the 28-year-old musician was released, as his father decided not to press charges against his son. Wisin then asked the media to respect his family's privacy: "Blood runs thicker than water, and my family is part of me. Please understand this and give us space to deal with this matter privately," he said in a press release.
