“The Canadian rapper had a hearing Tuesday in L.A. where he was remanded into custody of the Sheriff’s Department, and the judge set his bail at $350K. Prosecutors had requested he be held without bail, or at least set it at $5 million,” TMZ reported.
“Of course, this all pertains to Tory’s felony assault case … stemming from charges that he allegedly fired a gun in her direction and caused her great bodily harm, to which he’s pled not guilty,” the report added.

The post on its own may not appear dangerous, but in the context of the case helped send the rapper to jail over his words.
