The guy no really cares about, Lloyd Banks was arrested in some rural hicktown in Canada (of all places) for giving a boo-boo to some backwards promoter. Here’s a little interview with the promoter that briefly discusses what went down.

Here’s MTV’s side of the story.
Sergeant Brad Finucan of the Waterloo Regional Police’s Criminal Investigations branch told MTV News on Sunday (January 10) that Banks (real name: Christopher Lloyd) and three associates got into a dispute with the promoter at a local hotel over payment for performance and an appearance fee. The promoter’s name was withheld by police.
The promoter alleged that early Saturday morning the lyricist and three associates — Nicklas Sloane, Shawn McGee, and Tyrell Cooper — held him in his hotel room against his will, assaulted and robbed him. All four men were charged with forceful confinement, aggravated assault and robbery.
What started the incident apparently is that Lloyd Banks was miffed that only 15 people decided to show up to his show and he took it out on the promoter.
