After serving time for basically the same thing, you would think rapper Mystikal would know better. Hmm, maybe deep down inside he likes being in lockdown.
Michael Lawrence Tyler aka Mystikal has turned himself in to authorities in connection with an alleged sexual assault that took place October 22, 2016. This, according to a report on the KSLA-TV website.
KSLA is reporting that the alleged incident happened at a Shreveport casino. The rapper was in Shreveport-Bossier area last year for the “Legends of Southern Hip-Hop” concert. The station’s report also says investigators reportedly collected DNA evidence at the scene matching 46-year-old Tyler (Mystikal) and 26-year-old Averweone Holman.
Warrants were secured for Mystikal and Holman for one count each of First Degree Rape. Bond was set at $2 million each. U.S. Marshalls arrested Holman in Killeen, Texas on Friday.
Pagesix.com reports that another arrest was made by someone allegedly trying to get the victim to drop the case.
An associate of the “Shake Ya Ass” rapper named Tenichia Wafford was also arrested on the charge of accessory after the fact to first-degree rape. According to Shreveport police, Wafford allegedly sought out the victim to try to convince her to drop the charges against Tyler and Holman. Wafford’s bond was set at $200,000.
Mystikal pleaded guilty to sexual battery and extortion charges in 2003 and served in prison until January 2010. Later, he also pleaded guilty to two federal misdemeanor counts of failing to file tax returns on a total of $1.7 million he earned in 1998 and 1999. A judge allowed him to serve the federal sentence concurrently with the state at the David Wade Correctional Center in north Louisiana, near Homer, reports NOLA.com.
Mystikal, of course, is known for his platinum hit “Shake Ya Ass/Shake It Fast” and “Danger (Been So Long)” both released in 2000.
Meanwhile, Shreveport police are also looking for 42-year-old Tenichia Wafford of Harker Heights, Texas in connection with the case. Wafford allegedly tried to convince the victim to drop the charges against Mystikal and Holman.
Investigators say Wafford faces a charge of accessory after the fact to first-degree rape. Her bond is set at $200,000.00.
