Nas turned himself in to police on Wednesday and was charged with assault for allegedly throwing a bottle at a man during a fight in a Manhattan nightclub.
Nas, 30, was with several other people on Dec. 10 at the Greenwich Village club Ciclo when an unidentified man approached his table and claimed that the rapper had grabbed him, police said.
A fight followed but was broken up by a bouncer, police said. While the bouncer was talking to Nas, the rapper grabbed a bottle and threw it at the unidentified man, hitting him in the head and cutting him, police said.
A telephone call to Nas' record label, Columbia Records, went unanswered Wednesday.
Nas, born Nasir Jones, grew up in the Queensbridge housing projects in Queens. He made his name as one of rap's top performers in 1994 with his breakout debut, "Illmatic." In his latest release, "God's Son," he feuds with fellow rapper Jay-Z.
