U.S. Marshals arrested rapper Young Thug arrested early Wednesday morning at his home on an outstanding warrant for terroristic threats.
On July 7, Young Thug, whose real name is Jeffrey Lamar Williams, allegedly threatened to shoot a Perimeter Mall security guard in the face. According to the arrest warrant, Williams was asked to leave the mall and was being escorted out when he “threatened to shoot (a security guard) in the face.”
Jim Joyner, spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, said Young Thug was arrested without incident around 6 a.m. at a residence in Sandy Springs. The U.S. Marshals were helping Dunwoody police serve a warrant charging Williams with terroristic threats.
The “Stoned” rapper was taken to Dekalb County jail for his initial appearance and bond hearing.
