Mystikal is charged with Rape after Shreveport Police issue an arrest warrant for the rapper.
UPDATE: Mystikal is now accused of rape. Police obtained warrants for the 46-year-old rapper and 26-year-old Averweone Holman. They are charged with one count each of First Degree Rape. Bond was set at $2 million each.
While police spokesperson Cpl. Angie Willhite refused to elaborate, KSLA reports that the incident stems from the rapper’s stop in Shreveport on the Legends of Hip-Hop” tour.
While the nature of the charges are not known, Mystikal is no stranger to the law.
In 2003, Mystikal’s rising career was interrupted, when he was sentenced to six years in prison for sexual battery and extortion after he forced a female employee to tape herself engaged in sex acts.
According to reports, the alleged rape occurred because the victim accepted checks against the rapper’s bank account even though she knew he didn’t authorize them.

The rapper also served two months in jail for violating his probation, after he was arrested for domestic abuse in February of 2010.
