The bizarre Joe Budden saga that has seen a domestic abuse allegation, a robbery allegation, a manhunt, Budden turning himself in, and Tweeting from behind prison bars, just took another twist as Budden has formally been charged with robbery and grand larceny by the NYPD.

According to and the New York Daily News, Budden turned himself in yesterday morning and rung up on robbery and grand larceny charges after allegedly stealing his ex-girlfriend's cell phone outside a Uptown Manhattan restaurant. The Slaughterhouse MC has also been accused of bashing his ex-girl's head into the dashboard of his car and choking her inside his home but was not charged with any form of assault.

Budden was released after his mother bailed him out of jail for $10,000.
