Last month we featured ‘Leo’ Linell Laster-Church, the little brother of 100k Tucc, when he posted videos of himself threating people with guns on the streets of Nashville. Now he’s been charged with the brutal assault of his sister, also at gunpoint. He’s free on a $15,000 bond after a Tuesday arrest.
The District Attorney’s office filed a motion last week to revoke the bond of ‘Leo’ Linell Laster-Church, based on the videos we posted of his threats to individuals in Nashville, which he posted on social media. That motion will be heard on October 2nd. Since that motion was filed, however, Laster, who is the brother of rapper ‘100k Tucc’, was arrested on new charges on Tuesday, and he didn’t go easy.
According to an arrest warrant from the assault incident, Linell Laster-Church assaulted his foster sister, who had stayed out all night with her boyfriend, and upset their mother by coming home late. Reportedly, when Linell realized how upset his mother was he began to punch the victim in the face with his fists. He is said to have continued to beat her in the face and then pulled a handgun on her at least three times during the assault, additionally striking her in the face. She says he made statements about killing her and the people she loved as punishment. Linell’s unnamed girlfriend was also present and is alleged to have headbutted the victim. The warrant details injuries on the victim, including a busted blood vessel in her eye, and a swollen eye and nose.
The warrant for the above assault case was signed on September 6th, and when Metro police went to arrest him on September 10th, accompanied by Detective Hummell, they arrived as his mother’s home who stated he was inside sleeping. Officers entered the home, advised Linell Laster-Church he was under arrest and instructed him to place his hands behind his back, at which time he exclaimed:

‘Leo’ Linell Church continued to pull his arms free from the grasp of police while being taken into custody, then continued to twist his body in an effort to escape, which was unsuccessful. He was eventually overpowered, without injury, according to a note in the warrant, as observed by Detective Hummell. Laster-Church was charged with resisting arrest, in addition to the warrant for domestic assault, and posted a $15,000 bond after the state-mandated domestic violence hold. He has multiple upcoming court appearances.
