Rapper Silentó Arrested For Assault With Deadly Weapon
American rapper Silento was arrested over the weekend for alleged domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon in two separate incidents.
The “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” rapper whose real name is Richard Lamar Hawk, was taken into custody on Friday by the police after a report of a domestic disturbance. He was booked and released on a charge of inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant.
The following day, Silento allegedly went to a random home while holding a hatchet. According to the police, he entered the strangers’ residence while searching for his girlfriend. The homeowners and their children were home at the time and were shaken by the intrusion but unharmed, the police said.
Silento was arrested by police officers about a block away from the resident and later charged by the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
