Tory Lanez was handcuffed and remanded to custody Tuesday in a pre-trial hearing for the felony assault case involving Megan Thee Stallion.
Reporter Nancy Dillion shared updates on Twitter from the hearing in which Judge David V. Herriford of the Superior Court of Los Angeles County presided. After almost an hour of arguments regarding social media activity by Lanez, Judge Herriford determined that some of Lanez’ tweets “seems to be clear messages” directed at Megan, constituting a violation of the protective order.
Lanez was determined to be in violation of a disovery protective order and a personal contact order and was remanded to custody until he can post a new bail set at $350,000. If he posts bail, as a condiiton of his release, Lanez was ordered not to mention Megan Thee Stallion’s name on any social media platform.
A trial date has been set for Sept 14.
