Busta Rhymes busted again
May 3rd, 2007 under Arrested, Busta Rhymes. [ Comments: none ]

It has been a few weeks since Busta Rhymes was arrested, so I guess his time was due. Busta was pulled over by police last night because the car he was driving had overly tinted windows according to AP. When the police officer stated talking to him he smelled alcohol on his breath and proceeded to arrest Busta. He is expected to be arraigned today on charges of driving while impaired.

Seriously when is Busta going to realize he shouldn't do anything illegal (like drive drunk with tinted windows) while he is in NYC because the NYPD has his number?

NYPD still hates Busta Rhymes
March 11th, 2007 under Busta Rhymes. [ Comments: none ]

A movie production company was forced to begin its first day of shooting Saturday without Busta Rhymes after the NYPD raised security concerns. The Police Department declined to detail its specific concerns about Rhymes, who angered officers last year when he refused to cooperate with the investigation of his bodyguard's murder. The man was shot during the filming of a music video. Rhymes is a cast member in "Order of Redemption," which began shooting in midtown Manhattan. Julianne Cho, associate commissioner with the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre & Broadcasting, confirmed the shooting had started — and that Rhymes was absent. "The production agreed that Busta Rhymes would not be participating in the scenes shot here after the Police Department raised public safety concerns," Cho said in a statement. The crime drama, starring Academy Award nominee Tom Berenger, is shooting scenes in New York City on 14 nonconsecutive days into early April. Cho said the production had the necessary permits.

He would not be going through all of this if she just cooperated with the NYPD in the first place. He made his bed and now he is lying in it.

Busta busted again
February 23rd, 2007 under Arrested, Busta Rhymes. [ Comments: none ]

Busta Rhymes was busted again yesterday – this time for driving without a license in lower Manhattan – barely a day after appearing before a judge on two assault charges. The "Touch It" rapper was pulled over at 6 a.m. after he allegedly ran a red light at Warren Street and Broadway. He got out of the car and told cops, "You hide behind the shield. This is bulls – – -," prosecutors said. He later told police he thought the officers were robbers posing as cops. Cops charged Rhymes yesterday with operating a vehicle without a license. He was released on his own recognizance and did not comment as he left Manhattan Criminal Court last night. On Tuesday, a judge offered Rhymes a sentence of three years on probation, six months of anger management and three weeks of community service on charges of beating up his former driver and a fan.

I still say if he would have cooperated with the cops when his bodyguard was shot and killed, he would not be arrested every few weeks.

Busta busted for busting up his bus’er
January 4th, 2007 under Arrested, Busta Rhymes. [ Comments: none ]

Rapper Busta Ryhmes was busted again. This time, he’s charged with beating up one of his drivers. Rhymes, 34, turned himself in Wednesday night and was booked on a misdemeanor assault charge at a Manhattan police station. Wearing a red, long-sleeved shirt and jeans, Rymes was led out of the station late Wednesday. He’s due in court in lower Manhattan Thursday. The rap star, whose real name is Trevor Smith, was charged with assaulting one of his limo drivers in a dispute over 19 days of pay the driver says he was owed. The man told police that Rhymes had punched and kicked him numerous times in a confrontation outside a lower Manhattan building on Dec. 26. This is the latest legal problem for the rapper. Last August, Rhymes was charged with assaulting a man who spit on his car after a Randall’s Island concert. Police have also sought to question Rhymes as a potential witness in the shooting death of his bodyguard, Israel Ramirez, last February — a case that’s still unsolved.

Why do all these celebs think they can get away without paying people. I am proud of that limo driver for actually going to the police.

Busta Rhymes busted again
November 3rd, 2006 under Arrested, Busta Rhymes. [ Comments: none ]

Busta Rhymes rapped his way into a ticket last night when cops caught him yakking on his cellphone while driving, police said. The superstar recording artist was spotted on the phone as he cruised past the Midtown North police station on W. 54th St. about 7p.m., cops said. The 34-year-old rapper, whose real name is Trevor Smith, has had other brushes with the law. He was notoriously uncooperative with investigators after his bodyguard, Israel Ramirez, 29, was gunned down in Brooklyn during the video shoot for Rhymes’ "Touch It (Remix)" last February. Then, in August, Rhymes was charged with assault for allegedly pummeling a Bronx man who spat on the rapper’s auto in Chelsea.

If only he would have cooperated in the first place…

Bet you a K-Fed penny he will serve more time for spitting on the ground than Busta will for beating him up

Busta busted
August 20th, 2006 under Arrested, Busta Rhymes. [ Comments: none ]

Rap star Busta Rhymes was being grilled by cops last night about the unsolved murder of his bodyguard after being busted for assaulting a man at a Randalls Island concert, a police source said.Rhymes, whose real name is Trevor Smith, was arrested at about 8 p.m. as he and his entourage tried to flee the East River island.At least two members of Rhymes’ crew were also taken into custody.Cops said Rhymes, 34, was being investigated for assaulting a concert-goer identified as Roberto Lebron, who may have spat on Rhymes’ car after the rapper’s 5 p.m. performance at the Heineken AmsterJam Festival that also featured Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, LL Cool J and the Foo Fighters.A police source said Rhymes tried to bolt off the island after getting a tip he was about to be arrested. Cops quickly headed him off at the pass at about 8 p.m., the source said.The rapper and actor was questioned for a few hours last night at the 13th Precinct stationhouse on E. 21st St. near Second Ave. before leaving with his entourage.Details of the assault were sketchy.But the incident offered detectives a golden opportunity to interview Rhymes about the Feb. 5 slaying of his bodyguard, Israel Ramirez, a source said."I don’t know if this is normally something he would even be arrested for," said a police source. "But his bouncer was killed and he didn’t want to cooperate. "This is our way of dealing with it." Ramirez, 29, the father of three sons, was gunned down during a video shoot of Rhymes’ "Touch It (Remix)" at a recording studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.The victim’s family and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly have criticized Rhymes for refusing to cooperate with detectives investigating the shooting. Police believe Rhymes has been stonewalling them because he’s adhering to the rap industry’s "stop-snitching" mantra.

New York Daily News 

I still don’t understnd why he did not cooperate with the cops in the first place. The bodyguard risked his life for Busta and what did Busta do for him?
