A man who is an employee for 50 CENT is facing assault and gun charges, after he allegedly pistol-whipped a HARTFORD, CT nightclub promoter last week, reports ALLHIPHOP.COM. DWAYE "HOVE" MCKENZIE lives at 50 CENT's FARMINGTON mansion. According to police, MCKENZIE and promoter HOWARD ALLISON were involved in an argument last WEDNESDAY (10/10) outside of HARTFORD nightclub CLUB LIFE. The pair were allegedly arguing over ALLISON's refusal to announce an after-party that was taking place at 50 CENT's mansion.
MCKENZIE, 26, allegedly struck ALLISON in the right eye with a pistol and told him to "call the cops," before getting into his SUV and driving off. MCKENZIE was charged with two counts of carrying a pistol without a permit, two counts of second-degree assault and one count of weapons in a motor vehicle. He is being held on $750,000 bail.
