Lil Twist Charged With Six Felonies

Lil Twist‘s week is off to a very rocky start. The rapper has been charged with six felonies after he was involved in an attack and robbery in Los Angeles in November 2014. Last year, the Young Money signee was hanging out with some friends at actor Kyle Massey’s apartment when he was kicked out after an argument took place. Apparently angry about the incident, Twist and four male friends later returned, breaking into the apartment, beating up Kyle’s brother Chris Massey — he used brass knuckles — and stealing his cell phone and wallet.

As a result of his actions, the L.A. County D.A. is charging Twist — a longtime friend of Justin Bieber — with criminal threats, burglary, grand theft, battery and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, TMZ reports. An arrest warrant has been issued for the 22-year-old Texas native, who faces up to 25 years behind bars if convicted.

This isn’t his first run-in with the law either. In 2014, he beat a DUI charge after he was caught speeding and with weed in his vehicle when he was pulled over in Calabasas, Calif. He walked away with three tickets for speeding, passing a red light and possessing under one ounce of marijuana. A year prior, he was accused of a hit-and-run while driving Bieber’s car.
