UPDATE: Busta Released from Jail, Due in Court Next Week

busta-11.jpgBusta Rhymes was released from police custody this afternoon following his arrest on a charge of operating a motor vehicle while impaired. According to TMZ.com, Busta was released on 7,500 bail and is expected to be arraigned on the charge next Tuesday, the same day his trial on two charges of assault is set to begin. According to sources, the rapper is said to have told cops that he only consumed one shot of Hennessey before he got into his 2006 Yukon Denali. The official police report notes that Busta failed a field sobriety test, and was then taken to the police station where he was tested again and found to have a 0.067 blood alcohol level. The legal limit in New York State is 0.08.

    When bullshit like this keeps happening to an individual its mostly likely because they’ve been living wrong. Karma dont fuck around and right now Buss is gettin it in the ass. He’s been gettin hit hard with negative press for over a year and a half now. I suggest he have a major reevaluation of his life and find out what it is he’s doing to catch these bad breaks.

    damn he wasnt drunk but wasnt his license suspended? I mean Busta is turning into DMX, which is sad because as a MC busta is one of the top ten all time. I wish he would get off the steriods and hen dog and focus on his music…after he gets his life in order.
