Offset paid $17k for the privilege of being released from prison.
Offset is officially out of jail. After being arrested last night, there was some speculation about when he might get out, but Cardi B has now posted a video on Instagram Live of her and Offset with the caption "Home."
Cardi B isn't the only one announcing Offset's return home. Quavo tweeted "H E H O M E."
There was a possibility of Offset not being released today, due to the fact that the power went off during his arraignment, but according to TMZ it continued by flashlight and Offset was released. He was originally arrested on Friday night, with his bodyguard Senay Gezahgn, while the two were driving in Offset's Porsche. The cops pulled them over for an alleged illegal lane change which Offset's lawyer, Drew Findling, denies. He also denies the existence of guns in the Porsche, for which Offset was charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and possession of weapon during the commission of a crime. Findling emphasizes that "[Offset] 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."
Offset posted $17 thousand this morning in bail and is free chill at home with his wife and newborn. His court date for the charges is as of yet unknown.
