It feels as though the police have it out for Young Thug. He’s been arrested more times than we can count and yesterday, he was placed in handcuffs just hours before the Grammy Awards. According to TMZ, Thug was riding with his friends in West Hollywood when they were pulled over at a McDonald’s. One of the men in the car told an officer that he was in possession of a registered firearm but upon inspection, the gun was not legally identifiable in the state of California. The man was instantly arrested and the rest of the people in the car, including Thugger, were cuffed. Thankfully, the artist was able to get to the event in time for his opening performance. He was also in the crowd when he won his first ever Grammy for his contributions to “Song of the Year” winner “This Is America.”
Hopefully, this string of legal issues ends for Young Thug. He’s far too valuable in the game to keep spending time behind bars.
