PostSubject: Busta Ordered To Pay $100K In '05 Assault Case, Jan 05, 2007   Sat Mar 31, 2007 11:10 am

Busta Rhymes was recently ordered by a court-appointed referee to pay
$100,000 in damages to a fan that he assaulted outside a New York
sandwich shop in 2005.

As SOHH previously reported, Melvin
Smith, a 37-year-old handy man from East Orange, NJ, filed a lawsuit in
March 2006 claiming that Busta and his bodyguard Troy Green hit him for
no reason when he asked for an autograph outside of the Corner Gourmet
II deli in lower Manhattan.

According to Bruce Regenstreich,
Smith's lawyer, who spoke to the New York Post, Busta and Green were
found civilly liable for attacking his client. The assault left Smith
with "serious bodily injuries," including "opening a cut on his eye
that required four stitches" and forced him to lose work.

Green was charged criminally in the case, but Busta was not.

was in court before a judge yesterday (January 4), where he was hit
with yet another assault rap for allegedly punching out his ex-driver
in a fight over 19 days' worth of back pay.

The rapper was set
free on $3,500 bail after surrendering Wednesday night (January 3) and
spending the night at Central Booking. He is due back in court on
February 20.
