This isn't the first time Malik has broken the law. Considers these incidents:
Last year, Malik was found guilty on illegal firearms related charges in Arizona.
In its 2.19.09 findings, the FPPC acknowledges that a casino affiliate of Mrs. Marian Ilitch and Malik, BarWest LLC, was found in 2006 to have violated the same CA campaign reform laws and Malik agreed to pay fines and file the appropriate disclosures in that matter.
Malik was once arrested for beating up the 12-year-old son of a girlfriend.
