Lil Twist, a rapper best known for his friendship with Justin Bieber, has reportedly been charged with six felonies in connection to an alleged incident that took place at actor Kyle Massey's house back in November.

The L.A. County D.A. reportedly charged Lil Twist (real name Christopher Lynn Moore) with criminal threats, burglary, grand theft, battery and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, TMZ reports.

The charges stem from an alleged incident last November where Twist, along with others, were at Massey's home. Massey and his brother asked them to leave after which Twist and his friends returned to the residence. He allegedly assaulted Massey with brass knuckles, and stole his wallet and cell phone. TMZ reports that there is an arrest warrant out for Twist, who could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted on all six counts.

A rep from the L.A. County D.A. did not responded to Billboard's request for comment by press time.
