New Zealand rapper Scribe has been found guilty of possessing a Class A drug but has been dismissed of five other charges. 

Scribe, whose real name is Malo Ioane Luafutu, turned up for his judge-alone trial at Christchurch District Court on Thursday with his own camera crew. 

Scribe was in court facing six drug, weapons and breach of bail charges. 

He was found guilty of possession of methamphetamine and dismissed of three breach of bail charges, possession of an offensive weapon, namely a bat and possession of instruments.

He has been remanded on bail and will appear for sentencing in May.

The chart topping hip-hop artist was allegedly seen in the Phillipstown area of Christchurch swinging a softball bat and swearing while asking whose car was parked in the path of a driveway.  

He also allegedly threw Rashuns chips in the air and caught them in his mouth.

A Phillipstown resident said she was in her motorhome playing cards when she heard a man screaming "whose f**king car is this?".

Scribe appeared in the Porirua District Court in August last year after being the subject of a police appeal after he failed to appear in Christchurch District Court on drug and weapon charges.
