    A New York judge has sentenced Busta Rhymes to three years of probation for assaulting his former driver and a fan. The 35-year-old rapper was also ordered to pay a $1,250 fine, perform 10 days of community service, and join a drunken driving program.

    "If you mess up, you're going to jail," Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Larry Stephen told Rhymes in court. "I've given you a chance."

    After the ruling, Rhymes was quick to point out that "I have no trouble being a good dude because that's what I am … I thank the judge for giving me a chance and I thank everybody for being supportive.

    Rhymes added, "[I want to get back to] having fun, making music, running around and showing love."
