Mystikal Turns Himself In on Rape Charges
Over the weekend, Mystikal was charged with first degree rape, and a warrant was put out for his arrest. Now, he's turned himself in to the Caddo Parrish Sheriff's Department, according to TMZ.
The Shreveport Police Department were looking for Mystikal, real name Michael Tyler, along with another man they believe is connected to the crime named Averweone Holman. U.S. Marshals arrested Holman in Killeen, Texas on Friday (Aug. 18).
The arrest stems from a 2016 incident at a casino in Louisiana where Mystikal was said to be performing, but details are scarce, and the rapper's team tells TMZ the charges are false. Mystikal's bond is set at $2 million.
Investigators reportedly collected evidence at the scene of the crime that matched the 42-year-old Mystikal and the 26-year-old Holman. Police are also reportedly looking for Tenichia Wafford, a 46-year-old Texas woman who authorities say tried to get the victim to rescind her story. Wafford is facing a charge of accessory after the fact to first-degree rape, and her bond is set at $200,000.
