Rapper Silento Charged With Assaulting Two People With A Hatchet – In The Wrong House
After entering two strangers’ home and attacking them with a hatchet, Silento, a rapper famous for his song “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae),” was arrested this Thursday. At the time, he was out on bail from an August 28 Orange County arrest for a domestic violence incident. According to TMZ, he was there looking for his girlfriend, but was later informed by a friend that he had entered the wrong house.
Silento had swung the hatchet and threatened the house’s two occupants before one of them was able to disarm him. After his friend arrived, they fled the scene, and the police were contacted. He is now in police custody with bail set at $105,000, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. His arraignment will take place today, and, if convicted of his charge of assault with a deadly weapon, he faces up to six years in prison.
