Lil Twist, a rapper who's also long been a part of Justin Bieber's entourage, pleaded not guilty to several felony charges, including first-degree burglary and assault with a deadly weapon. The charges came after Twist (whose given name is Christopher Lynn Moore) allegedly attacked a man who asked him to leave a party on L.A.'s Miracle Mile last November.

Twist, according to prosecutors, returned to the party about a half-hour after being asked to leave, bringing four others and allegedly provoking a second fight. During the scuffle, some of the victim's belongings were reportedly stolen.

The rapper was previously arrested in 2013 on suspicion of driving under the influence, but charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence.
