Mystikal has been arrested and charged with raping a woman in Louisiana.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the rapper turned himself in Monday to the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Department, and he was arrested and booked for first degree rape.
Shreveport PD put out the arrest warrant last week, but they hadn't been able to track him down until now. According to cops, another man, Averweone Holman, was also charged in connection with the crime.
We're told the charges stem from a 2016 incident involving a woman at a casino where Mystikal was performing ... but the details are scarce for now.
A member from Mystikal's camp tells us the charges are completely bogus, and he plans to plead not guilty.
He's being held on a $2 million bond.
"Police say a woman was raped on October 22, 2016 in downtown Shreveport, according to a report by KSLA. An investigation matched evidence to Mystikal, whose real name is Michael Tyler, and 26-year-old Averweone Holman. Warrants were issued for both men, who were each charged with one count of first-degree rape.
Holman was arrested on Friday (August 18) by US Marshals in Killeen, Texas. The search for Mystikal continues. Each man’s bond has been set at $2 million.
Another person, Tenichia Wafford, is also wanted by police in connection to the case. The 42-year-old woman is accused of trying to get the alleged victim to drop the charges. She has been charged with accessory after the fact to first-degree rape.
This is not the first time Mystikal has faced a sexual assault-related charge. He previously pleaded guilty to sexual battery and no contest to extortion in 2003. Consequently, he served a six-year prison sentence. The “Shake Ya Ass” rapper was released in 2010 and registered as a sex offender."
