Busta Moved -- Trial Gets Bumped

9/5/2007 1:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An unusually jovial Busta Rhymes arrived at court today for the start of his trial -- perhaps armed and smiling with the knowledge that he wouldn't actually have to stand in front a jury of his peers.

Judge Larry Stevens pushed back the start of the trial to November 7, when Busta (real name: Trevor Smith) will face the music on charges of assault, DUI, and driving without a license arising from four arrests in the last ten months. He's also facing a lawsuit filed by a fan who claims that at a concert last year, he was busted in the head by Rhymes' heavies.


Rhymes sauntered into Manhattan Criminal Court this morning gladhanding all the cameramen around -- even asking TMZ's guy why he wouldn't shake. Needless to say, the shooter complied in a hurry.

Its good too hear another glorified thug getting his day in court.
Why is it not surprising to hear that somebody like that would assault somebody, and have his thugs assault somebody.
