Busta Rhymes Catches a Break in Protein Shake Case

Bussa Bus gets assault charge dropped, pleads guilty to harassment.

Published November 6, 2015

Busta Rhymes pleaded guilty to second-degree harassment in court Friday, reaching a deal to reduce his felony assault charge. Rhymes, 45, was arrested last August for throwing a container of Muscle Milk at a gym employee. He spent a night in jail.


The Manhattan District Attorney’s office agreed to lower the felony count in accordance with Rhymes's completion of anger management classes. 

Rhymes was “all smiles” as he left court today. “Busta and I are glad that the DA’s office agreed to drop all the criminal charges,” his attorney Scott Leemon said. “We are glad to put this behind us and move forward.”

According to the New York Post, Rhymes's security guards got into a scuffle outside the courtroom. One of the guards reportedly pushed two women.
