We may be in the dead of winter but Lloyd Banks found himself in hot water recently. News broke over the weekend that the G-Unit rapper and three other associates were arrested following an incident with a Canadian promoter early Saturday morning (January 9).

According to reports, the dispute was over a missing payment and appearance fee for a show at Club NV in Blandford, Canada the night before. Banks and three other men are said to have confronted the promoter, Chris Hines, at a local hotel, which ended with him being assaulted. Hines suffered some lacerations, along with a bruised eye and possible head trauma.

Police were later called, resulting in Banks and his three associates eventually being arrested. All four have been charged with forceful confinement, aggravated assault and robbery, and are currently being held by authorities in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.

The four suspects appeared in court briefly Sunday afternoon and will appear before a judge later this week. Stay tuned to XXLMag.com for more on this story as it develops. —Anslem Samuel
