Playboi Carti (Jordan Carter) has been convicted of assault and causing damages to a tour bus while in Scotland last February. The incident in question occurred during Carti’s European tour when the rapper allegedly entered into a dispute with his tour-bus driver regarding the quality of the bus, which was transporting his 14-person entourage between Glasgow and London, and was reportedly rented for about £30,000 ($38,650 USD) for his three-week tour.
According to reports, the driver failed to action Carti’s complaints. The BBC has reported that one of the drivers, Alistair MacLeish, 57, told the court he saw Carter punch the German driver of the original tour bus.” He said, “I saw things being thrown around the tour bus and then a man ran across and punched the driver on the face, cutting him and knocking his glasses off.”
According to reports, two of Playboi Carti’s tour managers claimed that he “acted in self-defense.”
Playboi Carti denied the assault against the driver but admitted causing damage to the vehicle. He was reportedly fined a total of £800 ($1,030 USD): £500 for assault and £300 for to the driver’s window.
