Ja Rule Facing Assault Charges

Ja Rule surrendered

to a Toronto court this morning to face assault charges, stemming from an altercation

at a nightclub.

Police refused

to release details on the incident, which took place June 5 at Tornoto's La

Rouge nightclub.

They did say the

multi-platinum rapper was charged with assault causing bodily harm.

On July 1, Ja Rule

ran afoul of the law when he was pulled over for driving erratically in Manhattan.

A search of his

Mercedes Benz revealed a small amount of Marijuana. He was arrested due to an

outstanding warrant from 1996 for resisting arrest, fined $100 dollars and released.

The marijuana charges

were later dropped.
