Atlanta rapper Young Thug was arrested Wednesday (July 15) morning in Sandy Springs, Georgia by U.S. Marshals over an outstanding warrant issued by Dunwoody police.
The 22-year-old rapper was charged with making “terroristic threats” during an earlier incident on July 7, the U.S. Marshals office confirmed to Billboard. Dunwoody police inform Billboard they arrested him at 6 a.m. local time without struggle.
Young Thug’s warrant stems from a July 7 incident where the rapper, real name Jeffrey Williams, reportedly caused a disturbance at Dunwoody’s upscale Perimeter Mall. While being escorted out of the mall for alleged criminal trespass, “the accused threatened to shoot the victim [a mall security personnel] in the face with the purpose of terrorizing” him.
He faces his bond hearing in county jail today, July 15. Atlanta Journal Constitution first reported the news.
Billboard reached out to Young Thug’s rep for comment.
