Offset Arrested for Weapons Possession in Georgia
Just a bit over a week removed from the birth of he and Cardi B's daughter Kulture, Migos' Offset has reportedly been arrested. According to TMZ, the rapper was put behind bars after Georgia authorities pulled him over and discovered at least one weapon in his SUV.
A local CBS affiliate claims that Offset was arrested after being pulled over while he was driving a 2014 Porsche Carrera earlier today (July 20).
Clayton County arrest records reveal the rapper was just hit with four charges for this arrest, including possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a weapon during a crime, and possession of marijuana (one ounce or less), and an improper lane change. The first two charges are felonies, while the latter two are misdemeanors.
Being that Offset was already on probation, this arrest could have some sizable consequences. That probation stems from an arrest on April 18, 2015, when the rapper, along with his Migos comrades Quavo and Takeoff were taken into custody when police found marijuana and a loaded gun in their vehicle around the time the trio performed at Georgia Southern University.
Quavo, Takeoff and Offset were both charged with felony possession of a schedule II narcotic and carrying a loaded gun on school property. Unfortunately, Offset was by that time, a convicted felon, so he was also charged with gun possession by a convicted felon. Takeoff and Quavo were eventually released from jail, but Offset was denied bond.
On Dec. 4, 2015, after accepting an Alford plea deal, Offset was released from jail on a five-year probation. If he was, indeed, arrested for gun possession in Georgia, he could be in some serious trouble. Stay tuned for more details, as this is a developing story.
