Rich Gang’s Young Thug isn’t running away from the law. The hip-hop star reportedly turned himself into Georgia police after having an arrest warrant issued for him this week.
According to reports, Thug is currently in police custody on multiple charges.
Today (Sept. 11), jail documents show he was booked around 2:30 p.m. on five counts of violating the state’s controlled substance act. He’s currently in the custody of the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office. It looks like Thugger, born Jeffery Lamar Williams, may have headed back home to Georgia when he caught wind of the warrant, as unhappy fans reported on Twitter that he was a no-show at the J. Cole KOD concert in Denver, Colo. last night, on which he is a guest artist. (XXL Mag)
Thugger even appeared to reference his situation with an Instagram post.
Yesterday, reports emerged about cops wanting to get a hold of Thug.
The grand jury warrant was issued in DeKalb County after Thug was indicted on a slew of drug possession charges … according to our law enforcement sources. We broke the story, the grand jury rung him up last week on a total of 8 FELONIES! YT was charged with possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone and weed. He’s also charged with possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam, codeine (2 counts) and a firearm. (TMZ)
Recently, reports claimed YT came through with a few stacks for his entourage following a publicized Los Angeles bust.
Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ … he ponied up the bail money for all 5 of his homies — $50k for one guy who allegedly had an AK-47 and $35k each for the remaining 4 — and they were out of jail about 12 hours after their arrest. We’re told Thug had lawyers waiting for all of them at the jail with a bail bondsman after they were busted at his Dave & Buster’s album release/birthday party in Hollywood last week. (TMZ)
Last month, Thugger hit up Instagram with a reference to the arrest.
