Tory Lanez has been ordered to remain at home until a trial over the shooting involving Megan Thee Stallion begins next month.

According to a report TMZ published on Wednesday, October 26, a judge placed the Sorry 4 What rapper under house arrest during a hearing held in Los Angeles. Prosecutors initially argued that Lanez had violated the terms of his bail after he was accused of beating up August Alsina during an event in Chicago last month. They labeled him a threat to public safety and pushed for him to be taken into custody since he doesn't seem to be bothered by a monetary bail.

Lanez's defense attorney reminded the judge that no charges were ever filed in the case. Alsina posted the allegations to his Instagram timeline complete with bloody photos of his injuries. Although the Los Angeles Police Department investigated the claims, it has yet to result in any charges. Lanez has also denied his involvement in the fight and avoided talking about the subject in general during interviews.

The judge ended up meeting them halfway by placing the Canadian artist under house arrest until the trial begins on November 28. Lanez will have to wear an ankle monitor and be confided to his home beginning on Friday.

Tory Lanez previously pleaded not guilty after he was accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion outside of a party while they were inside an SUV. He was charged with one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and one count of carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. If convicted, the rapper could face up to 22 years in prison.
