Thugger catches a dub in his case.
Young Thug was indicted on a slew of drug-related charges in September. The rapper later accused the arresting officers of improper conduct and demanded that the case gets dismissed. After reviewing Thug's claim, the judge reportedly sided with Thug on the matter.

According to The Blast, Young Thug scored a huge W in his Georgia drug case on Thursday after the judge granted the rapper's motion to suppress key evidence. The prosecution called on three police offers to show their evidence. The court heard both Thug and the officers side of the story. In the end, the judge granted Thug's motion “as the stop of the vehicle was illegal in violation of the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution.”
The motion states, “Officer Fikes testified, unequivocally, that the sole season for stopping the vehicle was based upon a supposed window tint violation … However, there was no credible evidence present, whatsoever, how this vehicle’s window tint violated.”
The judge said that without proper evidence that there was evidence of the window tint violation, the stop of Thug's car was illegal and in violation of the law.
“The prosecution failed to present credible evidence that this vehicle was violating the law when it was stopped by law enforcement,” the order states, “and thus, all evidence that flowed directly and indirectly from this illegal stop and seizure must be suppressed, including, but not limited to, all statements, firearms and supposed drugs.”
Despite the victory in the case, there's a possibility it would still go to trial. If he's convicted, he could face years behind bars.
