Maino Pulled Over Near New York’s Rockefeller Center
Maino's been busted. The Brooklyn native was pulled over yesterday near NYC's Rockefeller Center during rush hour for driving his Bentley with a suspended license. The 37-year-old rapper, best known for his hit 'Hi Hater,' allegedly refused to heed police-enforced traffic directions that directed him to continue driving on Sixth Avenue, and instead turned onto 53rd Street to avoid the car congestion.
Maino, whose real name is Jermaine Coleman, was let off with a relative slap on the wrist after cops issued him a desk appearance ticket and allowed him to continue on his way. The 'All the Above' emcee got off easy, considering that he spent a decade in prison on kidnapping charges and was let out in 2003.
He most recently appeared in the news following an altercation with Yung Berg in an Atlanta nightclub back in 2008. Claiming that Berg was talking reckless, Maino open handed smacked the emcee to put him in his place. "I feel like I did him a favor. I tried to sober him up cause something was wrong with him," he later explained of the incident.
