Young Thug Returns to Jail for Failing Drug Test
Young Thug has been sent back to jail after reportedly failing to pass a court-ordered drug test.
According to court documents originally obtained by The Blast, the Slime Language rapper has had his bond revoked as a result of submitting a positive drug test. Jail records show the rapper was arrested Wednesday morning (Nov. 7), a day before he was due in court for an arraignment hearing.
Thugger, who is being held at DeKalb County Jail, was reportedly arraigned earlier today (Nov. 8) on eight felony charges stemming from his September 2017 arrest and is facing drug-related charges including possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone and weed. He was initially pulled over for having illegally tinted windows.
The rapper was also arrested last month on an unrelated felony gun charge in Los Angeles outside of a listening party at Dave and Buster's celebrating the release of his Slime Language project. Despite his ongoing legal troubles, Young Thug has been keeping busy, recently lending his talents as a guest artist on T.I.'s Dime Trap album, Lil Baby and Gunna's Drip Harder mixtape.
