Tory Lanez Arrested for Violating Megan Thee Stallion Protective Order
Tory Lanez was remanded into custody on Tuesday, April 5 for violating two types of stay-away orders connected to his former girlfriend Megan Thee Stallion, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office confirmed to NBC News.
The spokesman told NBC News that the orders included a “temporary criminal restraining order” and a “discovery protective order.” A judge set Tory’s bail at $350,000 and his trial for the case has been set for September.
Following the hearing, Tory’s attorney Shawn Holley told E! News in a statement, “The DA requested that Mr. Peterson’s bail be revoked or, in the alternative, that it be increased to $5 million. We are pleased that the Court rejected those outrageous requests.”
In October 2020, Tory was charged with one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and one count of carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle after allegedly shooting the “Savage” rapper after a night out on July 12.
After Tory was charged, Megan was granted a protective order against him. He pleaded not guilty to the charges in November 2020.
