Tori Lanes was handcuffed and taken into custody in a Los Angeles courtroom on Tuesday. A judge has found that he violated pre-trial security orders in his criminal assault case, which includes allegations that he shot Megan the Stalin in the leg during a drunken brawl nearly two years ago.
The “Say It” rapper had a bondman with him in court and was expected to be released soon after registering his new bail of $ 350,000. After hearing arguments for about an hour, Judge David Harryford granted Lonas new bail after finding that Lanes had violated court orders barring her from contacting or harassing Meghan or sharing any findings in the case.
Lanez, who pleaded not guilty, appeared in court wearing a black tuxedo jacket over a black turtleneck. With him were his father and many friends.
His lawyer, Shawn Holly, argued that Lanes did not provide a third-party Twitter user and YouTube personality known as DJ Academics, before Academics tweeted in February, “No Tory Lanus DNA found on McGill’s weapon. The Stallion Case. “
Holly confirmed in open court that the sweep on the gun with four contributors turned “endless”, so the academic tweet was “false”. “If he had seen this document, he would have gotten it right,” he argued. Holly further confirmed that Swap in the magazine of the gun “removed” the lens.
“The DA did not ask for bail or alternatively ask for $ 5 million in bail. The court rejected those arguments and increased the bail to $ 350,000. That bail is now being released, ”Holly said Rolling Stone.
Following a pre-trial judge’s decision in December that there was sufficient evidence to summon the judges to a preliminary hearing, the apex court is now rushing to a preliminary Sept. 14 hearing.
At the December hearing, a LAPD detective testified that Lanes, whose legal name was Doster Peterson, allegedly fired a semi-automatic 9mm pistol at the ground near Megan’s legs, injuring “Savage” singer Kylie Jenner’s home.
Detective Ryan Stokner said he interviewed Meghan on the phone on July 16, 2020, two days after the shooting, and then on May 12, 2020. Megan recalled the witness, whose legal name was Megan Pete. Peterson pulled the trigger.
“As she was leaving the vehicle, she heard Mr. Peterson yell at her obscenely and he said, ‘Dance, bitch!’ He then turned his shotgun on himself when apprehended by a police officer on the porch of the house where the shootings took place.
“(Megan) noticed Mr. Peterson holding a gun and then she noticed he was starting to shoot,” Stokner said. “Megan immediately felt pain in her legs, saw blood, fell to the ground, and then crawled down a path near an apartment … She described her injuries as excessive bleeding.”
Peterson’s high-powered attorney, Shawn Holly, roasted Stokner in his interviews with Megan, and suggested an alternative story in which Megan was involved in a physical confrontation with his girlfriend and former aide, Kelsey Harris. .
Holly suggested that Harris “had a romantic interest in Tory” and was jealous when he was told that he and Pete were in a “close relationship” while Peterson was driving home.
Holly suggested that Harris may have had a gun at the time of the shooting because investigators found gunshot wounds in his hand. Prosecutors said he believed the muzzle flash was very close to the non-victim woman at the time of the shooting, and that someone who witnessed the shooting from a nearby apartment said.
Under investigation by Deputy District Attorney Kathy Daw, Stokner said the shooting remnants could have been transferred to someone who was “near” the gun that was fired. Stockner also questioned the credibility of the eyewitness, who said he saw two men and a woman physically beating Pete.
“He believed they were trying to kill her. He said it seemed like a severe blow to him,” Stokner testified.
On the morning of the alleged shooting, Peterson was taken into custody by officers who responded to a “shot fired” call near the 1800 block of Nichols Canyon Road. He was released a few hours later on $ 35,000 bail after being charged with possession of a firearm hidden in a vehicle.
Pete had not publicly identified Peterson as his attacker for several weeks, but finally named him in an Instagram post a month later.
“Tory shot me. You shot me, you let your advertiser and your people go to these blogs, lies and shit,” he said in a video released on August 20, 2020. “Stop lying. Why lie? I do not understand. I tried to put the situation on the internet, but you drag it out.
She said, “Even though he shot me, I tried to save him. And mothers did not save me. That’s madness. “
As soon as the shooting happened, Pete was vague on social media. Stokner testified that he first told officers who responded that he had cut his legs in the glass. She told Stokner that she did this because she was worried about how the police would react if they found out Peterson, a black man, had a gun in his car.
“At the time, he said he was very scared and embarrassed, because he was friendly with the defendant, he was afraid he would get into trouble and expressed some concerns about the political environment. Regarding the police and the shooting, ”he testified. “He feared there had been a recent police shooting, and he described his concern about the police shooting the defendant as he opened fire.”
Peterson, 29, was formally charged on October 8, 2020, for allegedly assaulting the Houston-Britt actor with a semi-automatic rifle that caused “personal bodily harm”, concealed, mounted, and unregistered in the vehicle.
