Young Thug arrested for 'terroristic threats'
Young Thug has been arrested for "terroristic threats".
The 22-year-old rapper was arrested on Wednesday morning (15.07.15) on an outstanding warrant after allegedly threatening to shoot a security guard in the face earlier this month in Georgia.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper, the 'Stoner' musician was apprehended by the US Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force as a result of the incident at Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody, Georgia on July 7.
A witness of the argument told Complex magazine the rapper - whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams - had been riding around the shopping centre on a two-wheel Hovertrax board with his entourage when he was approached by the guard who said he should not have the Hovertrax in the mall, causing Young Thug to get defensive and threaten the man.
Complex wrote: "Thug reportedly lifted up his shirt as if he had a gun and threatened to shoot the security guard, who then said they would be banned from the mall and that cops would be called if they attempted to show up again."
Young Thug - who is a friend of Rihanna's - has been taken to DeKalb County jail for his bond hearing.
Meanwhile, the rapper has also been linked to an alleged plan to kill 'Lollipop' hitmaker Lil Wayne.
According to HipHopDX website, Young Thug, fellow musician Birdman and a third individual have been named in an indictment stemming from the shooting of Wayne's tour bus back in April, although no official charges are believed to have been made as yet.
