Mystikal was denied bond following being arrested on charges on first degree rape and felony domestic abuse. According to WBRZ2, arrest records say that the rapper, born Michael Tyler, was arrested on Sunday (July 31st) and is being held in jail without bond. A bond hearing is scheduled for this afternoon (August 2nd). According to the arrest warrant, the violent assault allegedly happened on Saturday (July 31st) and involved an acquaintance that visited Mystikal's home in Prairieville, LA.
Documents said Tyler accused the woman of stealing $100 from him before allegedly punching her, choking her, pulling braids out of her hair and taking her keys and phone to prevent her from leaving. The victim said she began looking all over Tyler’s home for the missing money, hoping it would calm him down. During the search, she told deputies she stumbled upon a “crystaline substance” in a drawer, which investigators believe may have been meth.
The woman also described Tyler as going through bizarre mood swings, one moment berating her over the missing money and the next becoming “very apologetic” and asking her to pray with him. The woman claimed that at this point, he asked if he could “feel” her. When she refused, the woman claimed was pushed onto a bed and forcibly raped.
After the assault, the report said Tyler again demanded the victim “return” the missing $100 through CashApp and gave the woman her phone so she could pay him. While she was setting up the payment, Tyler allegedly took the phone back, entered the amount of $150 and sent the payment to himself. After that, he gave the phone back and the woman was finally allowed to leave.
The woman claimed that as she drove away, she called a friend who agreed to meet her at a Baton Rouge hospital. There, she claimed a sexual assault kit was performed on her and deputies found injuries consistent with her description of the attack.
