US Rapper Busta Rhymes gets busted again


BustaRhymes_hip_hop_2much.jpgBusta Rhymes has been arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault after a man claimed the US rapper beat him up.

Police said Rhymes, 34, turned himself in at a police station in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday night and later appeared in court.

The man told police that Rhymes assaulted him outside a building on Boxing Day in an argument over money, Lieutenant John Grimpel said.

It's the rapper's latest incident in a series of run-ins with the law.

Rhymes, whose real name is Trevor Smith, was arrested and charged with kicking a 19-year-old man in the head five months ago.

Police have also sought to question the rapper as a potential witness in the shooting death of his bodyguard Israel Ramirez last February.
