A man who is known for rapping an apology in court two years ago is back in custody.

Police arrested Matthew King, 24, over the weekend on a Canada-wide warrant.

King is now facing charges of assaulting a police officer, giving a false name to police, and breach of probation.

In 2012, he pleaded guilty to a brutal assault that put a 16-year-old boy in a coma. 

He then rapped an apology to his victim and his family in a St. John's courtroom. He was sentenced to two years for that crime.

King will remain in custody until a bail hearing later this week.
