Young Thug Has Drug Charge Dropped
Young Thug is no longer facing drug charges stemming from a 2015 arrest.
According to TMZ, the Atlanta rapper’s felony drug charge was dropped after a lengthy legal battle.
In July 2015, Thug was arrested after police raided his Sandy Springs, Ga. home. The officers found weapons and drugs, charging him with felony cocaine possession, felony marijuana possession, and three counts of felony gun possession.
Eventually, the District Attorney dropped all but the marijuana charge. However, Thug’s lawyers claimed that even this was excessive since police searched his home without a proper warrant. In the end, the judge sided with Jeffery’s legal team.
Thug has been surrounded by legal issues. In July 2015, he was arrested for making terroristic threats at a mall. In December of 2016, he was arrested at another mall, this time for failing to appear in court. Earlier this year, he was also accused of slapping female rapper Akbar V.
Outside of legal troubles, he continues to thrive. Last week, he joined Ariana Grande and Pharrell Williams on Calvin Harris’ “Heatstroke.” He also recently released his solo cut “Best Thing of All Time,” and over the weekend, he performed at Floyd Mayweather’s son Zion’s 16th birthday party.
