Mystikal turns himself him in on rape charge

Police put the arrest warrant out last week.

Yesterday, it was reported that Mystikal had been issued an arrest warrant for first-degree rape. Police alleged that he and another man sexually assaulted a woman at a casino in October. Bail was set for $2 million.

According to TMZ, the rapper, born Michael Tyler, has now turned himself in to the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Department in Shreveport, La., where he was arrested and booked.


However, a member from Mystikal's camp told the site that the charges are false and that the rapper plans to plead not guilty.

Back in 2003, he plead guilty to sexual battery and extortion. He was later released from jail in 2010.
