The rapper was arrested on Thursday night while shopping at an Atlanta mall, and police report says officials were responding to a call about a stolen car in the mall parking lot, and after helping units recover the vehicle, two officers decided to do a walk-through in the mall to deter any further criminal activity.
During their search, they spotted the rapper—real name Jeffrey Lamar Williams—who has an outstanding warrant out for his arrest for failing to appear in court.
The officers confirmed the validity of the warrant and placed Young Thug under arrest. He was taken to the City of Atlanta jail and released on $750 bail.
According to legal docs obtained by E! News at the time, the “Digits” rapper was asked to leave the mall and was being escorted out when he “threatened to shoot (a security guard) in the face.”
