Young Thug‘s been dealing with some serious legal troubles lately. Earlier this week, a felony warrant was issued for his arrest in Georgia. He turned himself in on eight felony charges yesterday. Unfortunately, prosecutors are fighting to revoke Thug’s bond.
According to Bossip, prosecutors on Young Thug’s case want to him held behind bars without bail. Dekalb County District Attorney’s Office officials filed a motion yesterday (September 11th) to revoke the rapper’s bond. Thugger is expected in court tomorrow where he and his lawyer will argue while he shouldn’t be held behind bars until the case is resolved. Despite the prosecutors wanting the rapper to be held without bond, his lawyer has filed a motion for bond.
It’s currently unclear why the rapper is being held without bond. However, the publication suggested it might be due to how long it took for him to turn himself in.
A grand jury indicted Young Thug on several charges for allegedly violating Georgia’s controlled substance act. The rapper’s charges stem from a traffic stop last year where authorities discovered a gun, weed, Xanax, hydrocodone, and codeine after stopping the rapper for tinted windows.
His current legal troubles come in the midst of his tour with J. Cole. Additionally, the rapper announced his new project, On The Rvn which was expected to drop today. However, his engineer and friend, Alex Tumay explained that the delay is due to clearance.
