Young Dro Arrested for Drug Offense in Georgia
Young Dro has been arrested on drug charges. The Clayton County Sheriff's Department reveals that deputies arrested Young Dro around 3:30 p.m. today (Jan. 21) and booked him for violating the controlled substance act.
According to TMZ, the drug Young Dro was allegedly in possession of at the time of his arrest is unknown. Dro will remain in custody until at least Friday morning (Jan. 22) when the rapper is scheduled to have a bail hearing.
This is the Atlanta rapper's latest run-in with the law since he was accused of grand theft auto. An exotic dancer alleged that Dro asked her to borrow her Cadillac in February of 2015. She agreed on the condition that he would pick her up after her shift at the Pink Pony club when she was done working.
The dancer said that Young Dro never showed up. She was eventually able to locate her car using OnStar. Dro apparently dumped the car in an abandoned parking lot. Police arrived at the scene at the same time as the dancer found her car because they received reports of two men driving erratically in the area.
Police searched the car and arrested the dancer for drug and gun charges. After her release, she filed a grand theft auto report, which led to Young Dro's arrest.
