By HHL Editors

MacAuthor "Mighty Mike" Johnson, who had a hit this winter with 'Hit That Bit For The Gram,' is facing murder charges.

Court documents state that 20-year-old Richard Devon Phillips and Walter Williams Jr were walking to a store in Baker, Louisiana yesterday when Mighty Mike and Charmaine Wilson rolled up in their vehicle. Phillips then approached Mighty Mike, who was sitting in the passenger seat. They exchanged words and Mighty Mike shot and killed Phillips.

Williams told the authorities the confrontation that left his friend dead had to do with the distribution of party flyers in the neighborhood.

Police found Mighty Mike and Wilson's car in Baton Rogue today, and spotted damage to its passenger side window. Mighty Mike and Wilson surrendered to Baker police later in the afternoon.

Mighty Mike has been charged with second-degree murder, illegal use of a weapon, and obstruction of justice. Wilson is charged with accessory after the fact to second-degree murder and obstruction of justice.

RIP Richard Devon Phillips.

Suddenly the mini dance craze 'Hit The Bit For A Gram' sparked isn't so entertaining.
