Man Attempts To Shoot Joe Budden

Hip-hop star JOE BUDDEN and his entourage have been the targets of a failed drive-by shooting in New Jersey, America.

New Jersey police say the PUMP IT UP rapper and his pals were caught up in the violent incident on 17 October (03), but only released details about it yesterday (05NOV03).

Budden was driving his HUMVEE with two passengers in Jersey City, when he came to a stop and a man on a bicycle rode up next to the passenger side window wearing a ski-mask, say police.

The man pulled out a handgun, pointed at the passenger and pulled the trigger, but the gun did not fire. The man then pointed the gun at Budden and pulled the trigger, but again the gun failed to fire.

Police say the man allegedly exclaimed, "Ah, I'm just playing," and peddled off on the bicycle.

Budden followed the gunman, but lost track of him when he hopped off the bicycle and ran into a nearby doorway.

That doorway however, was Jersey City's West District Police Station. Police took the man into custody and later, found a 9millimetre handgun with a bullet jammed in the chamber in a garbage can on the police station's front steps.

The man was charged with aggravated assault and weapons charges.
