A local DJ who has garnered national attention from his connection to a hit rap song is behind bars in connection with a rape investigation.
DJ Bay Bay, whose real name is Terrance Stewart, is charged with one count each of simple rape and intimidation of a witness, according to Shreveport police spokeswoman Kacee Hargrave.
Stewart was arrested this afternoon and booked into the Shreveport City Jail where his bond is set at $150,000, Hargrave said.
Investigators say an employee at Kokopelli’s found a woman lying drunk and unconscious about 4 a.m. Thursday on the downtown night club’s second floor. Police think she was raped late Wednesday or early Thursday.
“I’m not sure if the sexual assault happened after she was drunk or before she got drunk,” Hargrave said. “We are continuing our investigation, more arrests are possible.”
Rapper Hurricane Chris’ song “A Bay Bay” is a tribute of sorts to the K103 Tha Beat radio personality. It peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is at No. 10 in the latest issue of the chart.
