Young Thug Arrest In Atlanta Related To Outstanding Warrant

More details are emerging regarding Young Thug’s arrest on Thursday.

Thugger, whose real name is Jeffrey Williams, was arrested at Lenox Square Mall moments after 8 p.m. on Thursday (December 22, 2016) in Atlanta while doing some Christmas shopping at a Fendi store. TMZ reported that cops were responding to a stolen vehicle call when one officer spotted the rapper and remembered he had seen an outstanding warrant for his arrest. He had previously missed a court date for illegal window tints on a vehicle that he was driving.

The “Future Swag” emcee was booked on failure to appear in court but was released the same day on a $500 bond. Last year, Young Thug was arrested at the Perimeter Mall in Atlanta for threatening a security officer who asked him to leave the mall following a disturbance caused by the rapper. After leaving the station on Thursday night, Thugger posted a video of himself on Instagram boasting about his freedom while he ate eggs and toast at a local diner.
