Busta Rhymes Arrested for Drunk Driving

busta-1.jpgBusta Rhymes was arrested early this morning (May 3) in Manhattan on a drunk driving charge. According to the Associated Press, the rapper was pulled over at around 12:45 a.m. on the upper West Side because his Yukon Denali SUV had overly tinted windows. NYPD Sgt. Mike Wysokowski says that Busta was taken into custody and charged with driving while impaired after officers smelled alcohol on his breath. The Aftermath artist is expected to be arraigned at some point on Thursday. His attorney, Scott Leemon, reportedly declined to comment on the incident, saying the charges would be addressed in court. This latest run in with the law comes just days before Busta is scheduled to go on trial for two separate counts of assault. Authorities claim that the controversial artist attacked his former driver Eddie Hatchet in December during an argument about money, and assaulted a fan that allegedly spit on his car. Prosecutors offered Busta a plea on both charges, but later withdrew the deal when he was detained in February for driving with a suspended license.

    Whats going on with Busta. This guy stays at the police station these days. We’ve been talking about Busta over at Highbrid Nation and I honestly think that the guy’s career may be going downhill from here.

    Police want his ass bad. They want him to snitch so they can get a promotion an extra 5 dollars an hour and he can throw away a million dollar music career.
    Fuck those pigs, Bus. Don’t say shit. Those irish pigs and guineas wouldn’t give up a million dollars to save thier own mothers.
    FUCK NYPD. Tell them to work for a promotion like everybody else. Like they care about Justice. They just want a desk job and more benefits.
