Rapper Busta Rhymes has been charged with assault after an alleged altercation in a Manhattan gym with a member of staff.
The 43-year-old, real name Trevor Tahiem Smith Jr, was arrested around 8.30pm on Wednesday after allegedly throwing a protein drink at a Manhattan gym employee, according to the Associated Press.

Rhymes allegedly threw a 17-ounce cardboard container of protein drink at the man, hitting him in the head.
It is not yet known if there were injuries.
