Young Thug's looking at additional felony charges after his recent arrest.
Young Thug's had his fair share of public run-ins with the law since becoming a celebrity. Yesterday, it was reported that Young Thug was arrested in Georgia by Brookhaven Police Department. Since then, he's been hit with a felony charge for marijuana possession as well as a misdemeanor charge for tinted windows. Now, it's being reported that Young Thug is looking at facing more felony charges.
According to a report from TMZ, Young Thug is now facing two more felony charges on top of the charges he's already been hit with. The Atlanta rapper is looking at a felony charge for possession of a gun and an additional felony charge for drug possession. The rapper was reportedly pulled over by the police in Georgia after they said they smelled marijuana coming from his car. The police later searched his Maybach where they allegedly not only found marijuana but liquid codeine as well. They also ended up finding a gun in his vehicle as well as $50 thousand in cash. The rapper appeared in court this morning and posted bond. He's currently out of jail right now.
While the rapper is currently facing new charges, he's had a good streak of avoiding convictions throughout 2017. In April, he got off another felony drug charge after police raided his home in 2015. It turned out that the police went into his home illegally. In the same month, he also got off a battery charge after allegedly slapping a woman outside of a nightclub after she tried to pick a fight with Thugger's girl. So it's safe to say that despite his legal troubles, he's been having some good luck on his side.
Despite the legal battles, Young Thug's had a pretty solid year in music. The ATL rapper dropped two projects this year. Earlier in the summer, he dropped his latest solo mixtape Beautiful Thugger Girls and last Friday, he dropped his collaborative EP with Carnage. Thug also won his first VMA this past summer, although he was apparently unaware that he even got the award. Regardless of the legal troubles, Thug's been winning.
