HipHollywood can confirm that Busta Rhymes was arrested in New York on Wednesday night after hurling a protein drink at a Steel Gym employee.

We are told that the rapper was taken into custody around 8:30 p.m. after throwing a full cardboard container of Lean Body protein drink at the victim.

The New York Police Department tells us that Trevor Tahiem Smith Jr, the rapper’s legal name, had been having an ongoing dispute with the gym worker. During the altercation, both parties began throwing water on each other and that’s when Busta apparently threw the drink, striking the victim in the head.

We are told that when law enforcement arrived, the gym patron had a laceration to his head. Smith was charged with second degree assault and was released early Thursday morning.

Following the incident, the rapper thanked his team on social media for helping “expedite” the evening.

“Thanks to everyone who helped expedite this evening for me,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’m good and we’re back to the grind. Heading 2 the studio 2 turn the bullshit into GREATNESS. I’m super good. #THECONGLOMERATE.”

HipHollywood reached out to the gym but they did not have any information at the time.
