Young Thug's RICO trial has been delayed until Tuesday morning.

One of Young Thug’s co-defendants has been stabbed in jail, leading to a recess in the rapper's ongoing RICO trial in Atlanta, according to Meghann Cuniff. Judge Ural Glanville explained the reason for the delay in court on Monday as a "medical issue."

“We had a medical issue come up with one of our participants. So I'm going to have to recess for the day. These things happen. We'll come back tomorrow morning at 9:00." He added that they'll "see how things go at that point in time and we'll take the week as it comes."
