As he waits for his trial on claims that he shot Megan Thee Stallion, another rapper, Tory Lanez has been placed under house arrest.
According to Greg Risling, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office’s assistant head of media relations, the court decided to put Lanez under house arrest on Wednesday as a result of claims that he assaulted musician August Alsina in Chicago last month.
According to CBS Los Angeles, the prosecution requested that Lanez, 30, be detained without bond because they believe he poses a danger to society due to a history of disobeying court orders. House arrest for Lanez, whose true name is Daystar Peterson, will start on Monday and run until the start of his jury trial on November 28, according to Risling.
In the criminal complaint, the prosecution claims that during an altercation in the Hollywood Hills in July 2020, Lanez fired shots at Megan Thee Stallion (actual name Megan Pete) after she stepped out of an SUV and “inflicted great bodily injury” on her. The rapper was accused by the authorities with felony assault in October 2020, and in November that year, he entered a not guilty plea. Lanez may receive a sentence as long as 23 years if found guilty.
