(Gossip-Grind) Mystikal Arrested For Rape:
New Orleans-based rapper Mystikal, real name Michael Tyler, turned himself into Caddo Correctional Center Monday, according to Shreveport Police Department. Mystikal allegedly raped a woman at a casino in Louisiana.
The police said Monday that they recovered DNA evidence during their initial investigation that allegedly linked Tyler, 46, of Prairieville, and Averweone Holman, 26, of Killeen, Texas, to the rape.
The rape occurred Oct. 22 at 300 Clyde Fant Memorial Parkway in downtown Shreveport. That address is at Clyde Fant and Fannin Street.
Detectives collected witness statements, statements from the victim, and physical evidence, according to police. Investigators submitted that physical evidence to the North Louisiana Criminalistics Laboratory for DNA analysis.
Investigators obtained warrants for Tyler and Holman charging each with one count of first-degree rape. Bail was set at $2 million each. The U.S. Marshall’s Task Force arrested Holman in Killeen on Friday. (Shreveport Times)
