The rap artist known as Tory Lanez has been charged with assaulting a female friend in the Hollywood Hills earlier this year, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced today.

Daystar Peterson aka Tory Lanez (dob 7/27/92) was charged today in case BA490599 with one felony count each of assault with a semiautomatic firearm – personal use of a firearm – and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. The defendant also faces a gun allegation and that he personally inflicted great bodily injury.

His arraignment is scheduled for October 13 in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center.

Deputy District Attorney Kathy Ta of the Family Violence Division is prosecuting the case.

On July 12, the defendant and the 24-year-old victim got into an argument while riding in an SUV in the Hollywood Hills. The victim exited the vehicle and Peterson is accused of shooting several times at her feet and wounding her.

If convicted as charged, the defendant faces a possible maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months in state prison.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department, Hollywood Division.

Last month Tory released an album called Daystar in which he refutes the allegations made against him and claims Megan and her team are setting up him to go to jail.

Girl, you had the nerve to write that statement on a affidavit
Knowing I ain’t do it but I’m coming at my truest
Trying to keep this sh*t 200 with you, shorty, I can’t prove it
But those people in your ear, they the true ones that I fear
They really got you thinking Tory Lanez would do you in for real
Don’t forget you was my b*tch, I held it down and kept it real
I would never paint no fake picture of you just for some mills
And I thought you was solid too, but look at how you doing me
Look at how you doing me, people trying to ruin me
