Chris Hines, the Canadian booking agent who was allegedly assaulted and robbed by G-Unit's Lloyd Banks and his crew, has just addressed the incident.
Per Hines, he was held against his will and beaten up for roughly 20 minutes by Banks and three other attackers. Word is Banks confronted Hines about not being paid for a performance at Club NV in Brantford, Ontario and an appearance fee. He was supposedly assaulted at a Kitchener hotel later that night.
“I worked with the guys for year, you know what I mean, I don’t really know what the f**k they were thinking, if they were watching a movie earlier,” Hines said in an interview that surfaced on Worldstarhiphop.com this morning. “I don’t know what that was about.”
As previously reported, Banks, 27, Tyrell Cooper, 24, Nicklas Sloane, 25, and Shaun McGee, 31, were charged with forcible confinement, aggravated assault and robbery. Police said that Hines was punched, kicked, robbed, and held in the hotel room for an hour. Afterwards, the concert promoter was treated at Grand River Hospital for serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
