Tory Lanez was placed on house arrest with an ankle monitor until his felony assault trial begins in November.

A Los Angeles judge placed Tory on house arrest on Wednesday after he allegedly punched singer August Alsina at a nightclub in Chicago last month.

During a court hearing in L.A. on Wednesday, a judge ruled that Tory is a menace to society who needs to be on lockdown until his trial begins on November 28.

According to TMZ, prosecutors argued Tory should be remanded into custody because he violated the conditions of his bail by punching August Alsina. Prosecutors say Tory is a threat to public safety and that bail alone wasn’t enough of a deterrent to keep him out of trouble.

Tory’s attorney, Shawn Holley, pushed back, noting that no charges had been filed in the Alsina case, and there were only allegations.

L.A.’s jails are overcrowded, so the judge ordered Tory to be confined to his home with a GPS ankle monitor beginning Friday, TMZ reported.


Tory looked nervous when he walked out of the courthouse on Wednesday. He was surrounded by paparazzi shouting questions at him.

The rapper, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, faces 25 years to life in prison for shooting rapper Megan Thee Stallion in the foot on July 12, 2020.

He has pleaded not guilty to shooting Megan.
