This is Bookman's second attempt at trying to file charges against J. Prince for assault.
Houston, Texas entrepreneur and CEO James Andre Smith "J. Prince aka James Prince" of Rap-A-Lot Records and J. Prince Boxing company is due in court May 21, 2007 for a Misdemeanor Charge of Assault. The charge was initially given due to Ronald Eugene Bookman allegedly stating that he was beaten by seven men at the instruction of J. Prince after being lured into a gym for a believed business meeting. The meeting was supposedly setup in order for Bookman to receive clearance from Rap-A-Lot so that rap artist Bun B. could perform a single with Bookman's first artist for a new CD on his label 7303 Records sources state.
This is Bookman's second attempt at trying to file charges against J. Prince for assault. The first attempt was dismissed by Judge M. Harris on the same day it was filed, which was filed on behalf of Police Department Investigating Detective David Hernandez on Friday, May 4. The latest charge was filed on May 7 where an arrest warrant was issued for Prince on May 9. J. Prince was released on bond after the arrest was made.
