Who knew banana pudding could be used as a weapon?
Young Dro knew apparently. And now he’s facing the consequences for such a not-so-sweet idea. According to TMZ, the Atlanta rapper was arrested on July 5 for allegedly launching a plate of banana pudding at his girlfriend during the heat of an argument.
TMZ reports that the argument began over money, and the “Shoulder Lean” rapper and his girlfriend ended up in a food fight. It was unclear who threw the first dish. Police was called to the scene of Dro’s Georgia home, and although his girlfriend refused to press charges, police put Young Dro in custody anyway.
Dro, 40, whose real name is D’Juan Hart, was charged with two misdemeanors of battery/family violence. Sources told TMZ that as of Monday, Young Dro remained behind bars on separate child support charges involving a baby mother from a previous relationship. Documents show Dro owes about $41,000 in back child support, TMZ said, but the rapper claims he’s all paid up and is being held on an error.
This is far from Young Dro’s first run-in with the law. Back in 2016, Young Dro was arrested on drug charges in Georgia. In 2015 he was accused of borrowing the car of an employee at the Pink Pony strip club in Atlanta and never returning it before he was stopped by police for reckless driving, TMZ reported. Police found a weapon and drugs in the car and ended up arresting the woman for it. The woman then filed grand theft auto charges against Young Dro.
It seems like women and the law are not Young Dro’s strong suits.
