SMH: Video Surfaces Of Young Thug Being Arrested On His Birthday

But Thugger's already back in action.

Published August 17, 2018

Atlanta’s young trap music icon Young Thug received a gift from LAPD on Thursday night (April 16) for his 27th birthday: a shiny pair of handcuffs, which they used to escort him from his Slime Language listening party at L.A.’s Dave & Buster’s Hollywood.

Fans captured footage of the officers hauling him away from the festivities, which made viral waves across social media just moments afterward. But in less than 24 hours, the “Lifestyle” rapper was back in action like nothing ever even happened.

  1. In the video, Thugger is surrounded by a horde of officers as they usher him down a long staircase and off to a police cruiser

    According to Hot New Hip Hop, a few members of his entourage were also arrested after one of them ran their whip into another police car. This prompted a vehicle search where they reportedly uncovered several weapons, leading to Thugger’s arrest.

    He was reportedly hit with a felony charge for carrying a concealed weapon.

  2. Apparently, he also posted that reported $35,000 bond from the incident, too

    In his first Instagram photo following the arrest, and just a handful of hours after, Thugger posted a selfie letting fans know he was a free man. “Faster than the officers got off…” he wrote in the caption. “#SlimeLanguage lil b**ch.”

    Faster then the officers got off... #SlimeLanguage lil bitch
