AllHipHop.com reports that Busta Rhymes was arrested shortly after an appearance at Heineken’s AmsterJam Festival last night (Aug. 19) on Randalls Island. While details of the arrest were not immediately available, police claim Rhymes may have assaulted a concertgoer that allegedly spit on his car, after his performance around 5 p.m. The New York Daily News reports that members of Rhymes’ entourage were also arrested and that police used the opportunity to question Rhymes for hours, about the Feb. 5 slaying of his bodyguard Israel Ramirez. Ramirez, 29, was shot and killed in Brooklyn, during a star-studded video shoot of Rhymes’ hit single “Touch It (Remix).” Ramirez was a longtime friend and bodyguard for Rhymes, who has been the subject of criticism for allegedly refusing to cooperate with investigators. Police believe an argument between G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo and another group of men sparked the deadly shooting on the set of the video.
