Nas (real name Nasir Jones) turned himself into New York City police yesterday and was charged with assault stemming from a December 10th nightclub incident.
The thirty-year-old rapper tangled with a man who approached him in the VIP area of the West Village club Cielo in the early hours of the 10th. After a bouncer broke up the tiff, Nas is accused of throwing a bottle at the man, striking him on the head.
Nas was arraigned Wednesday night and freed on $7,500 bail. He's due back in court on January 20th.
