With the CNN [click to read] Channel 10 reunion album coming this spring, N.O.R.E. has been attempting a comeback of sorts. Through his video blogs, he has been taking fans through this journey, even filming himself on a workout plan. But, that comeback has been slightly halted by problems with the law.

This Sunday, N.O.R.E. was arrested after tossing a cup of yellow liquid on a man and punching him in the face at a local Fatburger in South Beach, Florida.

According to the Miami Herald, N.O.R.E. and three other men walked in to the burger restaurant in a loud manner, shortly before N.O.R.E. ripped a decorative flower bouquet out of its place. Then, according to a police report, N.O.R.E. offered an unknown man the cup with yellow liquid in it. The man refused to take it, so Noreaga threw it at him.

''Do you know who I am?'' he allegedly yelled, before striking the man in the face three times.

N.O.R.E. and the three men accompanying him were running out of the restaurant when police arrived on the scene. All were apprehended. According to the report, N.O.R.E. was charged with simple battery and disorderly conduct in a licensed establishment.

Reacting via Twitter, the recently health-conscious rapper has emphasized he was eating veggie burgers, and refuted claims of breaking the flowerpot.
