Tory Lanez Charged with Felony Assault in Megan Thee Stallion Shooting
Tory Lanez has been charged in connection with the shooting involving Megan Thee stallion … just a few weeks after the singer released an album affirming his innocence.
The LA County District Attorney’s Office hit him with one count of assault with a semi-automatic firearm and one count of transporting a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle. The DA also alleges that the Conservatives have inflicted severe bodily harm.
If convicted, the rapper / singer faces up to 22 years and 8 months in prison.
As we reported … prosecutors said they were rehashing a felony assault with a gun charge against Tory after Megan said she was shot in July. Remember, Tory had been arrested but only charged with possession of a firearm. Prosecutors are now explicitly pointing fingers at Tory as the man who pulled the trigger … leaving Meg with a horrible foot injury.
It took a while for Meg before she went public and accused Tory by name like the person who shot him. She didn’t mince words when she said… “Yeah, that asshole Tory shot me. You shot me, and you made your publicist and your people lie on these blogs and shit, stop lie!”
As we reported, sources related to Tory say there were extenuating circumstances – and based on what we know … we think Tory is going to say it was an accidental shootout. Megan didn’t help the prosecutor’s efforts with a social media caption – which has since been deleted – that said she was back in the SUV when she was hit in the heel. It might indicate that she didn’t see it with her own eyes when Tory pulled the trigger.
You will remember … video of the incident shown the cops stop the SUV in the Hollywood Hills – with Tory lying face down on the sidewalk and Megan cautiously tiptoeing … leaving bloody footprints with every painful step.
We broke the story … Megan’s foot injuries were so bad she had to get into the operating room to remove bullets or bullet fragments.
