Two Migos Members Arrested on Drug, Gun Charges in Georgia
Two members of the rap group Migos were arrested over the weekend following the group's shortened appearance at Georgia Southern University's Spring Bling concert on Saturday (Apr. 18).
Billboard was able to confirm that Quavo (real name: Quavious Marshall) was taken into custody on four charges including possession of marijuana less than an ounce, possession of a schedule II controlled substance, carrying a weapon in a school saftey zone, and posession of a firearm or knife.
Documents posted on Rolling Stone confirm that his groupmate Offset (real name: Kiari Cyphus) was also arrested on four counts, two felonies including possession of a firearm by convicted felon and carrying a weapon in a school zone, as well as two misdemeanors including marijuana less than an ounce, possession of a schedule II controlled substance.
According to initial reports from TMZ, all three Migos members, including Takeoff (real name Kirshnik Ball) as well as the band's entourage were questioned by authorities after their stage manager cut their gig short because police were on site. After speaking to authorities, Quavo and Offset were arrested for felony possession of cocaine, Oxycontin and codeine as well as the gun charges. Members of their entourage were also reportedly booked in connection with the incident.
The arrest comes less than two months after six people were reportedly stabbed at the group's concert in Albany, New York.
Following the arrest over the weekend, Migos tweeted "#Fuck12." Further information about their current status was not available at press time.
