Rapper Playboi Carti has been found guilty of assault and causing damages to a tour bus, stemming from an alleged altercation in Gretna, Scotland in February 2018.
According to the PitchFork, the rapper whose real name is Jordan Carter was reportedly fined £800 (£500 for assault and £300 for the damage), following a trial at the Dumfries Justice of the Peace Court. Although he has denied the assault but admitted to damaging a luxury coach bus.
The alleged assault reportedly occurred after issues arose with a double-decker bus that the rapper and his entourage had been using for his European tour. After the driver failed to repair the bus, Carti reportedly “punched the driver,” according to a witness. Two of Playboi Carti’s tour managers claimed that Carti “acted in self-defense.”
Now, he has been found guilty and fined, and he had yet to address this as at press time,
