Young Thug is facing some serious legal trouble.

The Jeffrey emcee reportedly turned himself into police custody days after authorities issued an eight felony count warrant for the Thugger's arrest.

According to XXL, Thugger was booked around 2:30 pm on Wednesday (September 11) on five counts of violating Georgia's controlled substance act. An arrest warrant with eight felony charges was issued for the rapper last week.

Some of the charges include: possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone and weed. Thug was also charged with two counts of codeine possession and possession of amphetamine, Xanax and a firearm.

Police discovered 2.5 ounces of marijuana, $50,00 in cash and a slew of other drugs after the rapper was pulled over for illegally tinted windows in Brookhaven, Georgia.

This isn't the only legal woes Young Thug is facing. Just three weeks ago, Thugger was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed weapon after a member of his entourage allegedly crashed their car into a police car.
