Is it just me or does it seem like most celebrities get into hot water at some point or another during their career? On Sunday another one of the most famous rappers, this time from Louisiana named Mystikal was captured and arrested on misleading detainment and rape charges.
It makes you wonder if these people get high on their stardom and then get into trouble thinking they’re untouchable, or if they were always getting into trouble and it only came to light after they achieved their worldly glory.
In any case, Mystikal, 51, who apparently can’t spell right and whose genuine name is Michael Tyler, is having to face penalties of first-degree rape, simple burglary, simple criminal damage to property, domestic battery abuse, and false imprisonment. Quite the laundry list of charges, and with all the money he must have why would he still need to steal from anyone?
Authorities answered a call from a local hospital late Saturday night with information about a rape incident, Ascension Parish Sheriff Bobby Webre said. After taking the person who was victimized in the incident and interviewing them, it was determined that the suspect who raped and also left the victim with minor injuries during the assault was none other than Mystikal.
“He was arrested and booked into the Ascension Parish Jail. This is an ongoing investigation. Further details may be limited at this time,” said Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Donovan Jackson.
Of course, there won’t be many details out right away. If it had been just a normal civilian all kinds of details would be flying out the media right away. However, since this is a higher individual and someone famous to the public eye things will be “limited” at this time. I just wonder if authorities were yelling “Danger, Danger Get on the Floor” as they went in to capture the famous rapper.

However, believe it or not, this isn’t the first time Mystikal’s been in boiling water. Back in 2003, he pleaded guilty to extortion and sexual battery in a deal where he was charged for – you guessed it alleged aggravated rape. Allegedly, he was accused of kiting his hairstylist into partaking in sexual acts with not only him but two of his bodyguards as well. Later, he was sent to federal prison where he was probably signing autographs for the next six years, and upon his release in 2010, he was required to register as a sex offender in Louisiana.
In another incident, he was charged in 2017 on another charge. Can you guess what it was for? Bingo! Another rape charge, but this time he took it a step further and also obtained a kidnapping charge where he won the prize of spending 18 months in jail before being let go on a $3 million bond.
It’s very curious as to why this man keeps acting out and getting caught with rape cases. Perhaps he’s run out of material to rap about and needs more tough life experiences to write about? Whatever the case is a lawyer for the performer said that a bail hearing has been set for Tuesday.
“Our investigation into the facts has just begun, but we expect Mystikal will be granted bail,” attorney Roy Maughan said.
