BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana rapper Mystikal, who was released from state prison in 2010 after serving a six-year term for sexual battery and extortion, will be returning to jail May 14 for three months. Mystikal's real name is Michael Tyler.

On Monday, state District Judge Tony Marabella added the extra time as a condition of the 41-year-old Tyler's five-year probation in the extortion case because he was arrested in February on a misdemeanor charge of domestic abuse battery.

Prosecutor Sue Bernie told The Advocate Tyler stipulated to being in violation of his probation, which called for him to remain arrest- and conviction-free.

Tyler's attorney said Marabella ordered Tyler to spend another 90 days in jail but is giving him credit for the nine days he was detained after his Feb. 22 arrest.
