Busta Busted for Driving on the Phone, Curses Out Police
Busta, whose real name is Trevor Smith, was pulled over in his GMC Denali SUV in front of Manhattan's Midtown North Precinct station house. Police officers noticed Rhymes chatting on the cell phone while driving and issued him a summons for the offense. According to the New York Post Busta was none to happy about the ticket and cursed at the officers who stopped him. He then reportedly crumpled the ticket up, throwing it away and drove off.
Rhymes has had a tough year with the men in blue. This August he was arrested for allegedly beating a fan who spat on an associate's car. Police also claim Busta has been uncooperative in their investigation into the Feb. 5 murder of his bodyguard Israel Ramirez. The NYPD believes Rhymes was a witness to that crime.
