Rapper Busta Rhymes has been given six months probation in a US court after pleading no contest to a charge that he assaulted a woman during a concert.
Rhymes' record will be cleared if he completes his probation
Rhymes, real name Trevor A Smith Jr, was told to pay $300 (£162) in costs.
The incident happened at a concert in Massachusetts in 2002, when fan Celine Giguere allegedly touched Rhymes' chin.
Rhymes claimed he grabbed her hand and politely asked her not to do it again. A police report said he pushed her head into a table and threatened her.
The report said he used the words: "If you try touching me again, I'll kill you."
If Rhymes successfully completes the probation term, his criminal record will be cleared.
The 31-year-old rapper also filed an assault charge of his own against Giguere, who is from Providence, Rhode Island.
She is scheduled to appear in court on that charge on Wednesday.
