KBTT Announcer Charged with Rape


A DJ and radio personality whose name is familiar to hip hop fans nationwide was behind bars Monday in connection with a rape investigation.

DJ Bay Bay, whose real name is Terrance Stewart, is charged with one count each of simple rape and intimidation of a witness. Stewart was arrested Monday afternoon and booked into City Jail where his bond was set at $150,000, according to Shreveport police spokeswoman Kacee Hargrave.

Investigators say an employee at Kokopelli’s found a woman lying drunk and unconscious about 4 a.m. Thursday on the downtown night club’s second floor. Police think she was raped late Wednesday or early Thursday. She was treated at LSU Hospital. “I’m not sure if the sexual assault happened after she was drunk or before she got drunk,” Hargrave said. “We are continuing our investigation. More arrests are possible.”

Stewart’s attorney, Eric Johnson, of Minden, released a prepared statement on his behalf. “Mr. Stewart is innocent of these charges and intends to vigorously defend himself against them,” Johnson said. “We are very confident that after the case is tried by a judge or jury that Mr. Stewart will be exonerated.”
