A Detroit rapper known as Young Calicoe, who created controversy last month when he was featured in an internet video that boasted about dog fighting, still isn't off the hook with the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office.
The prosecutor's office is still investigating whether or not criminal charges should be filed against him, and is currently reviewing an arrest warrant request it received, said Mark Bernardi, the office's director of technology in a e-mail Friday to Mlive Detroit.
It's unclear when the prosecutor's office could make a decision. The Michigan Humane Society is also investigating Calicoe and doesn't appear to have a timetable set either.
The "MTV Cribs"-style video with Calicoe, credited to Midnight TV Hood Reality, also sparked a Detroit Police Department investigation because it also included footage of what appeared to be a full-fledged cockfighting operation in a Detroit home.
News of the ongoing humane society investigation comes nearly a month after Young Calicoe confirmed to Mlive Detroit via his Twitter page that he'll host a Sept. 7 battle rap event called "The Mayhem" at a Southwest Detroit strip club.

The Detroit home in question, featured in the video, was raided by the humane society last month and uncovered several pit bulls and roosters.
Footage of the raid, courtesy of Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ, can be found here.
UP-DATE ON 10/26/12
A court hearing that had been scheduled for today for a Detroit rapper charged with animal fighting was adjourned until next month.
In addition to the animal fighting charge, Toranio Hightower, also known as Young Calicoe, 22, is charged with conspiracy to gamble and conspiracy to commit animal fighting, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office. The most serious charge, conspiracy to gamble, carries a possible five-year prison sentence.
Savay Chokbengboun, 32, and Cassandra Worthington, 26, both of Detroit face even more charges in the raid, including cruelty to animals and possessing animal fighting equipment.
All three now face preliminary examinations Nov. 27 in 36th District Court.
An undisclosed number of dogs and roosters were removed from the house on West Outer Drive on July 11 after a video was posted online featuring a man identified as Young Calicoe giving a kind of home tour where he showed off pit bulls and roosters apparently used for fighting.
COURT IS 11/27,PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE...NEEDS MANY MORE SIGNS!!!!!!!!!!!
