Busta Rhymes Ordered To Pay $75,000

Another rapper is in trouble with the law again. This time its Trevor Nelson also known as Busta Rhymes. Back in 2003, Busta was accused of attacking a man at a rap concert in Albany, New York. The victim Alex Duncan claims that Busta Rhymes and a bodyguard assaulted him at a performance at the University of Albany.

He claims that both Busta and his bodyguard sprayed water on him, punched, and beat him. According to the New York Post, Duncan says he suffers from psychological troubles and has nightmares from the attack.

I wanted something to come out of it. I don't even go to parties anymore, because there's always someone asking, "What happened to that Busta Rhymes case," Duncan testified in court. Busta Rhymes' lawyer, Robert Kalina was not in court for the trial or hearings.

Duncan is seeking $75,000 in punitive damages from Busta Rhymes. The rapper has been ordered to pay Duncan the money.

Rhymes has not commented about the trial. There's no word if Duncan or Rhymes will return back to court.
