Busta Rhymes was arrested for second-degree assault charges at an NYC gym Wednesday night, according to CBS New York. Bystanders say the 43-year-old rapper threw a container of Lean Body Protein drinks at another patron of Chelsea’s Steel Gym. “This is another attempt to take advantage of Busta’s celebrity status,” Rhymes’s lawyer Scott Leemon said in a statement to TMZ, adding that the charges are “a bunch of bull.” Rhymes was previously arrested for assault in 2006.
