The cashier, Ole Hernandez, has come forward and identified himself as the victim of Rhymes’ attack.

Busta Rhymes reached a deal in the case regarding an altercation in which he was allegedly involved at a gym in August, ABC-7 reports.
The Brooklyn, New York rapper pleaded guilty to second-degree harassment today (November 6) after completing an anger management course.
Busta was arrested on assault charges after throwing a Lean Body strawberry protein drink at an employee of Steel Gym in Chelsea, New York. The two had reportedly been arguing prior to the drink being thrown. The employee sustained a minor head injury.
“We are glad the DA’s office did their own investigation,” Scott Leemon, the rapper’s lawyer, tells TMZ, “and agreed that criminal charges were not warranted.”
