Retna aka Marquis Duriel Lewis born March 24, 1979 - criminal history, assault, artist, Los Angeles, California

Marquis Duriel Lewis, aka Retna, Los Angeles, artist?, assaults his girlfriend Brittny Gastineau
UPDATE: He has a court appearance in Los Angeles for his most recent driving under the influence and without a license on February 26, 2015 Dept 60 Metropolitan Courthouse 8:30 a.m. 1945 S Hill, LA, CA 90007 3rd floor room 308. He was found guilty, paid a fine but was not rearrested.

Trying to figure out if the history he tells people is true. His parents were married here in Los Angeles in January 9, 1976. Clyde Lewis born about 1953 used to live in Tennessee. Fidelina Martinez born about 1949.

It appears currently Marquis Lewis bought a home in Hancock Park on Longwood. He paid over a million in 2013.

Marquis Duriel Lewis also has a big problem with the law. This is his criminal rap sheet for his name with exact birthdate. Some middle names are missing or spelled wrong but they are his based on his same bday.

01/12/2015  DUI, driving with no driver's license. He probably lost his license because of his priors.
12500.  (a) A person may not drive a motor vehicle upon a highway,
unless the person then holds a valid driver's license issued under
this code, except those persons who are expressly exempted under this

12/27/2014 Case 5MP00106 is the case above. He was arrested 12/27 but the case was filed against him 01/12/15. Next court date February 26, 2015 see above. Looks like he didn't show for his last hearing.

06/03/2014 Retna's girlfriend states he beat her up. Supposedly she didn't file charges and accepted money in a settlement as per TMZ.

06/07/2013 from Perez Hilton and civil restraining order documents below. He was "harassing two art gallery employees while also destroying paintings on display using a knife and some beer bottles.
Both of the employees got restraining orders against Retna, and one employee claims Retna attempted to put his hands around the employee's throat and also said:"Next time I see you I'm going to take your TONGUE out of your mouth n wrap it around your nexk and staple ur ass to the backboard n charge the kids in the neighborhood 25 cents. To throw rocks at ur some n stone u to death. Booyah." Perez Hilton states Marquis Duriel Lewis is "violent" and "scary." The two employees got TRO on Retna. Neither showed for the court hearing so they were dismissed. I would bet Retna paid them off as well. ANDREW VALMORBIDA aka Andy Valmorbida, PATRICK MICHAEL TENORE aka PM Tenore were the two individuals. I wouldn't call them "employees." They were friends with Retna and put on art shows for him introducing him to many people. Retna seems to like to assault his friends.

12/26/2012 Assault. Three counts 242.  A battery is any willful and unlawful use of force or violence
upon the person of another. According to Perez Hilton he was charged "for punching two employees of an art gallery in the head, and then later coming back to hit another one! Retna was ordered to stay away from the art gallery after that incident."

02/12/2003 DUI again.

11/12/2002 Assault and graffiti vandalism. 594.  (a) Every person who maliciously commits any of the following
acts with respect to any real or personal property not his or her
own, in cases other than those specified by state law, is guilty of
   (1) Defaces with graffiti or other inscribed material.
   (2) Damages.
   (3) Destroys.

03/22/2001 DUI, DWI 23152.  (a) It is unlawful for a person who is under the influence
of any alcoholic beverage to drive a vehicle.
   (b) It is unlawful for a person who has 0.08 percent or more, by

Article about his violence.

and another. It seems he had to pay to settle this assault case.

He is 6'0' 200 lbs 35 years old. This is just his most recent arrest.

He's renting a studio at 800 S Santa Fe Unit A, Los Angeles, CA 90021 with entrance on 7th Place. Also address 2110 E 7th Pl.

On the exterior wall of the building where he rents one unit there is a 2013 110' x 18' mural by Cleon Peterson. I was told if Retna sees people taking a pic of this mural which is visible from the street he yells and threatens people. I was in the area and thought I'd stop by to take a look. He wasn't there. I took this pic. If you are driving south on Santa Fe this is just north of 7th St. on 7th Place which is on the east side of the street. Retna has some major anger management issues.I don't suggest taking a pic of the wall if he is there.

So far I don't see him in any schools anywhere. I have a feeling he didn't graduate high school even though he states he graduated from Fairfax High School in 1997.
