Tory Lanez may have added to his legal troubles following his alleged assault on August Alsina, as the police say they are now investigating him over the alleged attack.
“We are aware of the allegations that the defendant attacked artist August Alsina and are investigating these claims,” the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office said in a statement. “The allegations are serious and will be thoroughly examined.”
The attack took place at a venue in Chicago.
“Never any disrespectful words were exchanged, so i was a bit confused at how somehow he turnt him self up w/ anger after hitting a blunt laced with cocaine obviously, (i heard the fizzle) and he snuck me when I turned my head to move to the side amongst all his antsy moving and to keep an eye on the endless n-ggas that was w/ him surrounding me,” Alsina wrote after the attack. “Which was security and some nigxa with a gun tucked… whom he then proceeded to run behind and hide to run back in the building. There was never a “fight”! Simply an Assault. Dude has no real friends, and is on a crash out mission.”
Lanez is currently awaiting trial over claims he shot rapper Megan Thee Stallion in the feet during the summer of 2020. He denies the allegations.
Lanez pleaded not guilty last November to assault with a semiautomatic handgun.
