Rapper Busta Rhymes received six months' probation after pleading no contest Tuesday to a charge that he assaulted a woman during a concert.
Rhymes, whose real name is Trevor A. Smith Jr., was also ordered to pay $300 in court costs. His record will be cleared if he successfully completes the probation term.
The rapper was performing a late-night gig in Fall River in December 2002 when Celine Giguere, of Providence, R.I., allegedly reached out and touched his chin.
In a statement read in court, Rhymes said that when he saw Giguere reach for his face a second time, he grabbed her hand and said, "Please make sure you do not touch me again."
According to a police report, the rapper grabbed Giguere, shoved her head into a table and said, "If you try touching me again, I'll kill you."
Rhymes also filed an assault complaint against Giguere. She's scheduled to appear in court on that charge Wednesday.
