(AllHipHop News) It looks like Playboi Carti let his anger get the best of him.
The “Magnolia” rapper was recently convicted of attacking his tour bus driver at a Scottish motorway service station.
BBC News reports Carti denied the assault but admitted to damaging the luxury coach at Gretna last February.
The luxury coach transportation equipped with beds and other equipment was hired for roughly $40,000, Carti, born Jordan Carter and his 14-deep entourage.
However, complications began to arise which lead to the need for a replacement bus.
One of the drivers, Alistair MacLeish, revealed he saw Carti punch the German driver of the original tour bus.
He stated, "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. It was the accused Carter who had been standing with a group, but as two guys tried to restrain him he wriggled past them ran across and punched the driver who stumbled back.
The driver did not retaliate in any way.
A trial was held Dumfries Justice of the Peace Court, resulting in Playboi Carti being fined around $1,000.
