The 26-year-old rapper, whose name is Belcalis Almánzar, as well as Tawana “RemyRojaLaPerla” Jackson-Morel, 36, and Jeffrey “AstonMartinChuck” Bush, 34, were arraigned on June 25 before the Queens Criminal Court on charges of second-degree attempted assault, third-degree assault, second-degree harassment, fourth- and fifth-degree criminal solicitation, fifth- and sixth-degree conspiracy and second-degree reckless endangerment. They were each released on their own recognizance.
Bush and Jackson-Morel are scheduled to return to court on Sept.9, while Almánzar’s next court date has not been scheduled yet. If convicted, each defendant faces up to four years in prison.
According to the indictment, on Aug. 15, 2018, Bush was allegedly at the Angels Gentlemen’s Club and Restaurant, located at 32-17 College Point Blvd., and after 3 a.m., Bush and an unapprehended woman allegedly placed an order at the bar with a female bartender. When the 21-year-old employee was in the process of serving the pair, the unapprehended female allegedly grabbed the victim by her hair, slammed her head into the bar and began punching her repeatedly.
Three additional unapprehended females allegedly joined in and also struck the victim repeatedly. The indictment alleges that Bush recorded video of the attack and used his body to attempt to block anyone from intervening in the attack on the bartender.
