Yung Berg — the rapper who stars on “Love and Hip Hop L.A.” — was arrested in NYC early Wednesday AM for allegedly brutalizing his girlfriend, and the charge is “obstruction of breathing” … TMZ has learned.

Berg — aka Hitmaka — and the woman were at the Gershwin Hotel when they got in an argument and he allegedly grabbed her by the neck, threw her to the floor, dragged her by her hair and hit her in the face.

Apparently the neck grab was enough for the breathing obstruction charge. When cops came, the woman had bruises and complained she was in pain.

This all happened because his credit card was declined.

According to sources close to Yung’s GF, Masika Tucker … after a booze-filled night at the “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” reunion show in NYC, Berg went to pay his bill, but the card was over the limit.

Yung stormed out, went to his hotel and Masika followed. She told him she paid the bill and schooled him for leaving her … and he reacted by grabbing her by the neck, throwing her on the bed and pulling her out of the room by her hair.

Yung then allegedly continued his assault by choking her out. Masika is already jumping to Yung’s defense, saying it’s totally out of character for him … and she blames it all on alcohol.

He allegedly did a real number on his girlfriend — leaving her with nasty injuries over much of her body when they had a hotel room brawl in NYC.

Masika Tucker told police … “He hit me and dragged me by my hair. He pinned me to the wall and grabbed me by my throat” — this according to the criminal complaint obtained by TMZ.

In the docs, Tucker says she suffered a laceration to her right forearm, a laceration above her left eyebrow, bruising to the left side of her neck, and a laceration to her chest.

In all, Berg was hit with four charges — three assaults and one harassment — but managed to avoid the “obstruction of breathing” misdemeanor … which he was initially booked for when he got arrested.

AS OF TODAY… VH1 released a statement where they decided to part ways with Yung Berg.

“Based on the severity of the allegations against Yung Berg, VH1 is terminating its relationship with him in connection with Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, effective immediately.

Yung Berg was arrested on November 5th and charged with criminal obstruction of breathing in connection with an assault on fellow cast member.

The arrest took place in a New York hotel several hours after the taping of the reunion special for Love & Hip Hop Hollywood had wrapped.”
