Yung Thug arrested | ATLPics.Net

The AJC reports local rapper Yung Thug was arrested Wednesday morning, eight days after he threatened to shoot a Perimeter Mall security guard in the face.

The AJC reports that Thugga, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, was arrested at 6 a.m. this morning at his Sandy Springs home by a joint task force of local police and the U.S. Marshals, who were heavily armed because Thugga is known to run with a notorious street gang in Atlanta.

The AJC reports that “as of 11 a.m., Williams had not yet been booked into the DeKalb County jail.” After he is booked he is expected to go before a judge to set his bail. Hopefully has no other priors or warrants or we likely won’t be seeing him for a while.

Police told the AJC that Williams was arrested following a “dispute that Mr. Williams had with Perimeter Mall security.”

Loyal reader Travis C. emailed to say he was there at the mall and witnessed the encounter.

“He threatened the security director at the mall because he was riding one of those 2 wheeled toys in Perimeter and they asked that he stop,” said Travis, who added: “He threatened to shoot the guy. Crazy.”
