Taylor Bennett, aspiring artist and brother to Chance The Rapper, turned himself into police after allegedly beating a man at a party.

Taylor Bennett is an up-and-coming artist, but many still know him primarily as the younger brother of Chance The Rapper. The Chicago emcee was arrested on Thursday after turning himself in for the beating of a man at a college party last month.

The incident allegedly occurred on September 28th on 2200 block of South Michigan Avenue. Reports indicate that Bennett attacked the 21-year-old college student after the man stepped on his shoe. The assault was caught on camera by a witness, and according to sources, the victim has suffered "a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain", as well as continuous "impeded speech and headaches."

After being tracked down on social media via the video, Bennet turned himself in this week. He and an accomplice who is said to have assisted in the beating were held on a bond of $75,000. 

Neither Bennett nor Chance have acknowledged the situation on social media.
