In other Tory Lanez-related news, Legit.ng recently reported on when the artist was initially charged by the Los Angeles Prosecutor's office.
Tory Lanez was officially charged with the shooting of rapper Megan Thee Stallion, during an argument that transpired back in July. Lanez will be arraigned on two felony charges that will be brought by the Los Angeles prosecutor's office.
The two felony charges are assault with a firearm and carrying an unregistered and loaded firearm in a vehicle. The complaint states Lanez “inflicted great bodily injury” on Megan Thee Stallion once she had exited an SUV.
Daystar Peterson is Lanez's given name. If he does get convicted, he will be faced with a maximum sentence of about 23 years. He was arrested on the night the shooting occurred but released subsequent to posting bail. Megan Thee Stallion, whose legal name is Megan Pete, is identified as Megan P in the case.
Initially she had declined to point the finger at Lanez but later posted an Instagram video that Tory had shot her, indicating what had caused the incident and asked for him to stop lying about it.
