On Monday, TMZ reported that the troubled hip-hop star – who is father to daughter My’chelle, 23; and son Million, 22 – ‘has yet to see a judge and no bond has been set.’

Mystikal previously spent 18 months in the Caddo Correctional Center from 2017-2019 for first-degree rape and second-degree kidnapping, which were ultimately dismissed due to lack of evidence in 2020.

Before that, the former US Army combat engineer served 81 days in East Baton Rouge Parish Jail in 2012 on a misdemeanor charge of domestic abuse battery.

And Mystikal also served six years at Elayn Hunt Correctional Center for sexual battery and extortion against his hairstylist as well as two misdemeanor counts of failing to file tax returns for 1998-1999.
