G-Eazy Pleads Guilty to Drug & Assault Charges, Avoids Jail Time Following Sweden Nightclub Arrest

Following his arrest at a Sweden nightclub early Thursday morning, G-Eazy has pleaded guilty to assault and drug charges, according to Swedish publication Aftonbladet. The 28-year-old won't face any jail time as a result of his skirmish with Stockholm club security. 

TMZ reports that the Oakland, California, native (real name: Gerald Gillum) left the country soon after seeing a judge and being released from custody in what was a scary 24 hours for the "Him & I" artist. He leaves relatively unscathed with just a $9,000 fine and a side monetary settlement with the bouncer who was the victim of the alleged nightclub assault. 

Police discovered 1.5 ounces of cocaine and a rolled-up hundred-dollar bill on G-Eazy at the time of his detainment, which turned violent when he was approached by several police officers. He later even admitted to using the drug throughout the night, according to The Blast. 

G-Eazy was celebrating a night out with Halsey and Sean Kingston following his Wednesday night stop on The Beautiful & Damned Tour. The European trek is scheduled to keep pushing forward with the next performance slated for Sunday at TAP1 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Billboard has reached out to G-Eazy's reps for comment.
