The Louisiana native has a long run-in with law enforcement and has had previous charges of rape and sexual assault in the past.
He spent six years previously for Sexual Battery charges and was released in 2010 before signing a record deal with Cash Money Records.
Mystikal, who was born Michael Lawrence, was originally being sought after by police for a sexual assault investigation that is alleged to have happened on October 22nd of 2016 in a downtown Shreveport casino.
According to the police report, investigators collected evidence at the scene matching Mystikal and 26 year old Averweone Holman.
Holman was arrested by authorities in Killeen, Texas on August 18th by United States Marshals. There is also a third person police are seeking in connection with the alleged crime.
Shreveport police say they are also looking for 42 year old Tenichia Wafford, of Harker Heights, Texas.
Police say Wafford tried to persuade the victim to retract her story in exchange for cash. She now faces a charge of accessory after the fact to first-degree rape. Her bond is set at $200,000.
Mystikal and Holman have both been charged with one count of first degree rape. Their bond has been set at $2 million each for their crimes.
