Fabolous Sued for Assault by Atlanta Busboy

Fabolous is in trouble. The New York rapper, who made a recent trip down to Georgia, has been sued by an Atlanta busboy named Octavious Butler, who claims that the ‘Body Ya’ MC assaulted him with a glass bottle at ATL’s Fox Sports Grill.

While working at the restaurant, Butler, who filed the lawsuit on Jan. 31 in Fulton County Superior Court, alleges that the Brooklyn native hit him with not only a glass bottle, but with his fist. He claims that Fab joined another attacker and assaulted him unprovoked. The financial terms of the lawsuit have not been disclosed.

This isn’t the first time that the 31-year-old rapper has gotten into trouble. Back in October 2006, he was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon after getting shot in the leg, and the following year, he was suspected to have been involved in the fatal stabbing of a childhood friend. In February 2009, police discovered 500 pounds of weed on his tour bus, though he dodged charges since he wasn’t aboard at the time.

Fabolous and Def Jam have yet to comment on the incident and lawsuit. The rapper is currently focusing on recording his upcoming mixtape ‘The S.O.U.L. Tape,’ set for release later this month.
