Young Thug Charged With Eight Felonies Stemming From Georgia Arrest
Young Thug has been charged with eight felonies stemming from an arrest in Brookhaven, Georgia almost exactly a year ago. The news, first reported by TMZ today (Sept. 6), citing court documents viewed by XXL, show that Thug has been hit with some serious charges stemming from a drug and weapons arrest last September.
DeKalb County court records show that Thugger is facing charges of possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone and weed. He's also charged with two counts of codeine possession and possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam (Xanax) and a firearm.
Police pulled Thugger over on Sept. 26, 2017 because the front windows of his car were illegally tinted. They then reportedly discovered 2.5 ounces of marijuana (a felony weight), a bevy of other drugs and $50,000 in cash.
Thug is due in court for his arraignment for the eight felonies on Oct. 9.
This certainly isn't the Atlanta rapper's first run-in with the law. He was recently arrested at Dave & Busters in Los Angeles during the listening party for his most recent project, Slime Language. Despite the arrest, the compilation mixtape still debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart.
