RICO Trial Drama: Young Thug's Parking Ticket Negotiation Caught on Tape Amidst Criminal Enterprise Accusations

The video reveals Thug's plea for a warning, a push-up contest challenge, and a surprising race proposal.

While in the middle of a RICO Trial where he is accused of co-founding a criminal enterpirse, footage of Young Thug attempting to negotiate his way out of a parking ticket has surfaced.

The violation occurred in 2021, and the clip shows Thug, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, being pulled over for going over the speed limit in Atlanta. During the interaction, Thug pleads with the officer “to let him get off with a warning.”

“Can I please get a warning? I don’t think I can take the ticket," Thug explained.

 “Why can’t you take a ticket? There are people that make $20,000 a year that take a ticket,” the police officers.

Thug said, "it's not about the money," but because he recently got his license back, he didn’t want the ticket to go on his driving record.

As the exchange continued, Thug went as far as to challenge to officer to a push-up contest and a race.

“How about I do one hundred push-ups?” he said. “Alright, let’s race. Let’s race, and if I beat you, no ticket. If you beat me, $2000,” 

“Have you ever done something and sought forgiveness? You wanted to be forgiven,” he continued.

The footage was released after he was identified as the alleged shooter in an incident that took place in 2013 on Tuesday (Feb.20).

Additionally, defense attorney Nicole Fegan, who represented defendant Tenquarius Mender, a former co-defendant of Thug, was arrested on gang-related charges.

The New York Daily News reported that Fegan allegedly made contact with a suspect in the Sept. 27, 2022, shooting of two men, one of whom died from his injuries.

Law enforcement officials claimed that Fegan “shared information with the suspect” at a preliminary hearing about active warrants for his arrest. She allegedly told the unidentified person, who was not one of her clients, to “dispose of his phone as police were going to arrest him.”

If found guilty of all the charges, Thug could be sentenced to 120 years.
