Lloyd Banks Arrested for Allegedly Assaulting Promoter in Ontario
Published Jan 11, 2010On Friday (January 8), G-Unit tough guy Lloyd Banks was scheduled to perform at Brantford, ON's Club N.V. However, like so many of these dubious celebrity club appearances, things got ugly when the New York rapper showed up hours late, performed one song and left.
According to AllHipHop, Toronto-based promoter Chris Hines refused to pay Banks for the appearance. As a result, Banks and three other men allegedly assaulted Hines in a hotel room, sending him to the hospital with head trauma and multiple contusions. They also allegedly robbed Hines and held him in the room for an hour.
Yesterday (January 10), all four men - Banks, Tyrell Cooper, Nicklas Sloane and Shaun McGee - were arrested in Kitchener, ON and charged with forcible confinement, aggravated assault and robbery. They were to appear in bail court this morning.
