YOUNG THUG ARRESTED FOR DRUG POSSESSION
Rapper Young Thug was arrested Saturday in Georgia by Brookhaven PD, and booked on one count of marijuana possession. He was also slapped with a charge for having tinted front windows. It seems likely the stiff charge is related to his 2015 arrest after a police raid on his home in Sandy Springs, Georgia, that saw him charged with felony marijuana and cocaine possession and three counts of felony gun possession. All except the marijuana charges were later dropped by the D.A.; the rapper was cleared after his lawyer argued the police had entered his house without a proper warrant.
A representative for the Dekalb County Sheriff’s Office told Variety the rapper (real name Jeffrey Lamar) was still in custody Wednesday morning but is scheduled to appear in court later in the day. News of the arrest was first reported by TMZ.
