Busta stopped by police for running red light
Busta Rhymes was charged Thursday with driving with a suspended license after police said they stopped him for running a red light. Rhymes was taken into custody in lower Manhattan around 5:30 a.m. His management, Violator Management, didn't want to comment. The 34-year-old MC, whose real name is Trevor Smith, was due in court Thursday night. If convicted he faces up to 15 days in jail. Rhymes already is accused of assault in two cases and is considering a judge's deal that would allow him to plead guilty to misdemeanor assault and perform community service instead of jail. In one complaint he's accused of kicking and beating Edward Hatchett, his former driver, during a Dec. 26 dispute over back pay. In the other case, Rhymes is charged with assaulting a fan for spitting on his car after an Aug. 12 performance.
