Offset's lawyer delivered his messages to the public.
Offset, of Migos, was arrested last night and has been charged with the crimes that many a rapper have been stuck with: possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and possession of weapon during the commission of a crime (the crime being the possession of marijuana and an illegal lane change). After much speculation, Offset's lawyer, Drew Findling has finally come out to address the public (through an interview with People magazine) and get the rapper's side of things heard. The lawyer said of the charges: “He did not commit any traffic offense and he certainly was not in possession of any weapons. This was an improper arrest and I believe in his innocence” and said also that Offset is "holding up as best he can considering the circumstances and knows he has not broken any laws. He is going to have his day in court.”
The arrest is very bad timing for the rapper, who just had a child, named Kulture Kiari, with his wife Cardi B. Offset's lawyer shared a message concerning Offset and his feelings toward his family outside: "he is concerned, very concerned, about [Cardi B]" and “of course his new baby is his top priority as well as his other children."
Offset will likely be released Sunday morning, since his jail has been posted already. He was expected to be released on Saturday morning, but there was a power outage in the jail.
