Rap veteran Mystikal knows he’s too old to stay running from law enforcement. The 46-year-old rapper has reportedly turned himself into cops following a rape accusation.
According to reports, cops have officially charged Mystikal 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. (TMZ)
Last week, reports initially developed over Mystikal’s serious case.
Shreveport Police obtained warrants for one count of First Degree Rape for Tyler and a second individual, Averweone Holman. Police are also looking for Tenichia Wafford, who allegedly tried to convince the victim to drop the charges. U.S. Marshals arrested Holman on Friday, but Tyler and Wafford are still at large. The alleged incident occurred at a Shreveport casino on October 22. (Pitchfork)
There is reportedly evidence from the crime scene which connects Mystikal.
Sources say the allegation stems from an incident at a Shreveport casino. The rapper was in Shreveport-Bossier last year for the “Legends of Southern Hip-Hop” concert. Investigators reportedly collected evidence at the scene matching 46-year-old Michael Tyler (Mystikal) and 26-year-old Averweone Holman. (Fox 8 Live)
