Following his surrender to the police in Georgia recently, Young Thug is now facing multiple drug possession charges. On Tuesday, the rapper went to the police precinct where he is now sitting behind bars.
Currently, the authorities are holding him without bail, however, he’ll face a judge on Thursday afternoon during a hearing where the judge will decide whether or not he’s allowed to post bail.
TMZ reported that there was a warrant out for the rapper’s arrest in DeKalb county following an indictment on eight different felony charges which include possession and intention to distribute meth, hydrocodone, as well as marijuana.
The rapper is also dealing with charges in relation to possession of amphetamine, known by its street name, Speed, as well as Alprazolam, codeine, in addition to an unauthorized firearm.
Last year, the police pulled over Young Thug for having tinted windows, and they then discovered all the illegal property he was in possession of. As fans of the rapper know, he’s no stranger to trouble in the legal system.
Previously, the rapper was facing off in a lawsuit against his old management team. Manny Halley, his representative, is supposed to receive a seven-figure dollar amount from Thug’s old team, David Weise and Associations.
It was all a part of a defamation lawsuit. Moreover, Young Thug’s former finance accountants racked up around $200,000 in unpermitted charges. Manny claimed that his former employees were intentionally trying to ruin the rapper’s finances.
Additionally, back in April of 2015, the rapper had to pay a bus driver because a group of Bloods shots at them while they were on their tour bus, exposing the driver to unneeded harm.
The bus driver filed a suit against Cash Money Records, as well as Young Money Records. A year later in January 2017, a promoter sued Young Thug because he never attended a concert that he had planned at Sahlen’s Stadium, ultimately embarrassing the promoter and affecting his reputation in the business.
