According to ABC7, the rapper known as Silento was arrested in two separate incidents in Orange County and Los Angeles for alleged domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon, officials said.
The rapper, whose real identity is Richard Lamar Hawk, was placed under arrest by Santa Ana police on Friday following a report of a domestic disturbance in the MacArthur Boulevard 100 block, authorities said. He was booked and discharged on charges of inflicting bodily injury on a spouse or cohabitant.
The next day, Hawk allegedly went to a random home on the 12700 block of Burbank Boulevard in Valley Village while swinging a hatchet. According to the LAPD, he was searching for his girlfriend and entered the strangers’ residence. Homeowners and their children were at home at the time, rattled by the intrusion, but uninjured, the investigators said.
Hawk was arrested by Los Angeles police officers a block away from the resident and later charged by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office with two counts of deadly weapon assault.
