Il réussit d'abord à entraîner dans son parti un grand nombre des seigneurs normands, qu'il convoque au château d'Eu, l'une des plus fortes places du duché. Mais Richard II de Normandie ne laisse pas aux conjurés[évasif] le temps de recevoir les renforts qu'ils attendent. Il enveloppe la forteresse, s'en empare malgré la résistance énergique des assiégés et la livre au pillage et force le rebelle Guillaume, son parent, à s'exiler. Guillaume Busac se rend auprès du roi Henri Ier.
