Williams appeared before Broward County Judge Kim Theresa Mollica via video Thursday afternoon. The police charged him with aggravated battery, domestic battery, strangulation, and false imprisonment. They left behind flowers and candles and decorated the sidewalk with chalk art. XXXtentacion's attorney said Tuesday that investigators told him the shooting was a botched robbery and that XXXTentacion had withdrawn money from a bank to buy a motorcycle. In 2016, he was arrested on charges including home invasion for a 2015 incident, and less than a month later was jailed on charges that he attacked his girlfriend, who was pregnant at the time. He said he used violence so she would engage with him. Later, he faced more charges including witness tampering.More news: Phil Mickelson finally issues apology for deliberately hitting moving ball
