[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]50 Cent[/lastfm] is back in the court room being sued again, but this time it’s for an assault that happened in his home! Even though he wasn’t home at the time, he is still being held responsible.
According to HiphopDX.com:
Dwayne McKenzie, and employee of 50 Cent, was arrested Tuesday (May 27) for allegedly attacking a woman at the rapper’s mansion.
According to the Associated Press, Mckenzie was arrested after police received a phone call from a 22-year-old New Britain woman.
McKenzie was charged with assault, strangulation, breach of peace and unlawful restraint. He was released after posting a $10,000 bond, and is due back in court July 15.
Police reports say that McKenzie allegedly choked the woman and struck her with a belt on 50 Cent’s property.
McKenzie has a troubled past, as he is currently on conditional discharge as the result of an arrest in Hartford for allegedly pistol-whipping a nightclub promoter.
In addition, he allegedly fired a .40 caliber Glock into a crowd after having his $100,000 chain stolen in 2007.

UPDATE: Vasti Ortiz, the woman who was attacked at 50 Cent’s mansion in 2008, has filed a lawsuit against 50 Cent because she claims “he knew or should have known McKenzie was a known criminal who had assaulted in the past.” According to TMZ, Fif was not present during the attack.
Someone should have done a background check on dude! Or maybe they did and over looked it? But all of that should come out in the court room!
