Busta Rhymes gets busted yet again. This time for driving his SUV around Tribeca without a valid driver’s license, they put him behind bars for 18 hours before arraigning him. The Officers who pulled him over were willing to give Busta an appearance ticket and a warning, but the Manhattan district attorney’s office had other ideas and had him locked up.
One law enforcement official told the New York Daily News, “The disrespect for the law, when he has cases pending, is over the line.”
Busta pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of driving without a license and a related violation, and was released around 11 p.m.
Busta is facing alot of charges, stemming from two assault charges which he was given a plea offer: six months in jail or six months of anger-management classes and speaking to kids. Judge Abraham Clott said yesterday’s charges would be combined with the assault cases. Rhymes was spotted by cops as he blew a red light in Tribeca about 5:20 a.m. yesterday, sources said. Police followed his 2006 GMC Suburban and stopped him at Warren St. and West Broadway. A computer check showed his license had been suspended Jan. 8 for ignoring a summons.
Also as most of you already know, his bodyguard Israel Ramirez, was shot dead outside a Brooklyn recording studio during a video shoot. he still refuses to cooperate with the cops about the investigation, cops said.
