On Tuesday, Oct. 13, Tory Lanez appeared in court via phone for what was supposed to be his arraignment for the shooting and assault of Houston rapper, Megan Thee Stallion.
However, according to TMZ, Lanez’s attorney, Shawn Holley, filed a continuance which was granted so that the “Say It” artist could not enter a plea. Instead, the judge presiding over the case ordered Lanez, born Daystar Peterson, to stay 100 yards from Megan Thee Stallion and “have no personal, electronic, telephonic or written contact.”
The Associated Press reported that Lanez must also surrender all firearms and post bail in the amount of $190,000. His arraignment has been postponed until Nov. 18.

Last Thursday (Oct. 8), the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office announced that Lanez was being charged with one felony count each of assault with a semiautomatic firearm – personal use of a firearm – and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle stemming from the July 12 incident involving Megan Thee Stallion.
If convicted, Lanez faces a maximum state sentence of 22 years and eight months in prison.
