Young Thug Reportedly Arrested For Felony Drugs Charges
Young Thug's been dealing with several legal issues in recent times. A warrant was issued for Thugger's arrest yesterday after it was reported that he was wanted on eight felony charges stemming from an arrest last year. Following the warrant, it appears as if Young Thug has officially turned himself in to authorities.
According to XXL, Young Thug has been booked on felony drug charges earlier today. The rapper turned himself in around 2:30 p.m. earlier today for violating Georgia's controlled substance act, according to the Dekalb County Sheriff's Department website. The charges Thug faces come from when Thug was taken into custody for possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone, and weed. He was also charged with possession of a firearm and other substances including two counts of codeine possession, possession of amphetamine, and Alprazolam. The rapper's bond hasn't been set yet nor has there been a
Thug's charges come from an incident in September 2017 where police reportedly found 2 and a half oz. of weed, $50K in cash and other drugs in his vehicle after pulling him over for illegally tinted windows.
Unfortunately, Thugger's recent arrest comes right ahead of the release of his project, On The Rvn, which he formally announced a few hours before he turned himself in. The rapper is also currently on the road with J. Cole for the "K.O.D" tour. Fans pointed out that he wasn't in the building for the Denver concert last night which might have to do with the warrant that was issued for his arrest.
