Young Thug Turns Himself in to Georgia Police Following Warrant for Eight Felonies
On Monday (Sept. 10), it became clear that Young Thug was a wanted man in his home state of Georgia after a grand jury warrant for eight felonies was issued in his name. Two days later (Sept. 12), the 27-year-old has turned himself in to DeKalb County authorities, according to judicial documents obtained by XXL.
The DeKalb County Sheriffs' Office database show he was booked at 2:25 p.m. ET on five counts for violating Georgia's controlled substance act. There is no further clarification on when the rapper will be released from custody. The felonies stem from the YSL artist's Sept. 2017 arrest, where he was originally pulled over for tinted windows but then police found a medley of drugs upon searching the vehicle.
He was charged for possession and intent to distribute hydrocodone, meth, and marijuana. Additionally, Thug was hit with two counts of codeine possession, Xanax, amphetamine, and had an illegal firearm on him. Thug reportedly departed from J. Cole's KOD Tour to head home and served as a no-show at the trek's Denver stop (Sept. 10), much to the dismay of fans.
Thugger also teased an upcoming On The Rvn project (Sept. 11) that could be released very soon as a potential parting gift for fans with his freedom in question. A handwritten notepad posted by Thug features possible collaborations with Elton John, 6LACK, Jaden Smith, and T-Shyne.
