Nas Arrested for Assault

Rapper accused of throwing bottle in nightclub

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.
