Busta Rhymes Heading to Trial After Prosecutor Withdraws Deal

busta11.jpgAccording to Eyewitness News/WABC New York, Busta Rhymes is facing a May 8 court date in New York City on two assault charges. In December of 2006, Busta allegedly assaulted his former driver, Edward Hatchett, after money disputes. Then, in August of 2006, Busta allegedly assaulted a fan that spit on his car after a performance at the AmsterJam Music Festival on Randall’s Island. Busta was only facing probation and community service at first, but after he was arrested in February for driving with a suspended license, the courts have had a change of heart. According to Criminal Court Judge Tanya Kennedy, Busta’s community service and probation deal is now off the table. The court is now pushing for Busta to serve one year in jail for both assault charges.
