21 Savage's Felony Theft Charges Dropped
21 Savage has one less problem to worry about in his deportation case.
The District Attorney in Liberty County, Georgia has dropped the felony theft of services charges against the rapper involving a concert promoter who claims he blew off a show after getting paid.
In 2016, 21 was booked to play a club gig in Southern Georgia. He was reportedly paid $17,000, but never hit the stage. The promoter got a warrant for his arrest, but never pursued charges, until 21 was arrested by ICE on Feb. 3.
According to The Blast, Savage turned himself in to authorities on Feb. 15 and was released shortly after. The D.A. passed it off as a civil matter and rejected the case.
While there are no outstanding warrants for 21, he still faces deportation after being released on bond last month. He has applied for a visa to stay in the country, but the process could take years. Under Trump’s immigration policy, an applicant must leave the country until the application is approved.
