Say it ain’t so!
Mystikal has been arrested and charged with first-degree rape in Shreveport, La. According to TMZ the New Orleans rapper turned himself in to Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Department on Monday (Aug. 21) after police put out a warrant for his arrest last week.
Officials say that the charges are from an alleged 2016 sexual assault of a woman at a local casino. A previous report from KSLA claimed that investigators found DNA to match Mystikal, whose given name is Michael Tyler.

This isn’t the first time that Mystikal has faced similar accusations. After being charged with aggravated rape and extortion, Mystikal served six years for sexual battery and upon his release in 2010.
