The Associated Press reports that LAPD officer Drake Madison said Young Thug hosted at a party marking he release of his latest album, “Slime Language,” at a Dave & Buster’s in Hollywood. The party was also meant to be a celebration of his 27th birthday.
“Several hundred people” gathered outside Dave & Buster’s, with police making numerous arrests, including the arrest of Young Thug.
Madison indicated that Young Thug was arrested after “officers found a firearm inside his car.”
The Blast reports that one of “Thug’s cars bumped a squad car belonging to the police department. During a subsequent search, several guns were found, including an AK-47. One of the cars was a Rolls Royce.”
After being released from custody, he used an Instagram post to exclaim, “Faster than the officers got off.”
