Busta Rhymes Arrested In Muscle Milk Incident

By HHL Editors

Yesterday, Busta Rhymes was busted in what's probably the strangest Hip Hop arrest in some time.

The 43-year old got into an argument with a staff member at a New York City gym, and threw a Lean Body protein drink container at the worker, striking him in the back of the head.

Although the victim didn't seem to be particularly injured by the cardboard container, Busta was taken away by police.

Witnesses say Rhymes had argued with the staff member the day before after he told the rapper he couldn't bring a cameraman into the gym.

Then, yesterday, the staffer told Ryhmes to leave the gym, sparking the argument.

Rhymes was charged with second degree assault. He was released from jail early this morning on his own recognizance.

"This is another attempt to take advantage of Busta's celebrity status." his lawyer Scott Leemon told TMZ.
