Ja Rule Pleads Guilty

Hip-hop star JA RULE was fined $1,200 (GBP640) by a Canadian judge Monday (07MAR05), after pleading guilty to assault.

The ALWAYS ON TIME hitmaker, real name JEFFREY ATKINS, became embroiled in a fight with a reveller in Toronto's La Rouge nightspot last June (04), where he had been filming his role in crime thriller ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13.

After pleading not guilty to a more serious assault charge, Atkins accepted he had delivered "one punch to the eye".

Atkins apologised to the Ontario city, saying, "I'm just sorry about my actions."

His lawyer STEVEN SKURKA says, "The judge found the conduct of the patrons at the club unacceptable and called it disgraceful.

"They had been taunting him earlier before the assault took place. It was one punch to the eye of the victim who he believed was insulting him."
