Young Thug Arrested For “Terroristic Threats”

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that U.S. Marshals arrested Young Thug (whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams) at 6AM today in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Police in Dunwoody, Georgia issued the outstanding warrant that led to Thug’s arrest. According to U.S. Marshals spokesman Jim Joyner, “Williams was wanted on an outstanding warrant charging him with terroristic threats stemming from an incident that occurred with the jurisdiction of the Dunwoody police.” Thug didn’t resist arrest, and he’s been taken to DeKalb County jail, pending bond hearing. There’s no more information right now on why Thug was arrested, but “terroristic threats” does not sound good. It would really suck if this turned out to be an arrest over rap lyrics.

UPDATE: TMZ says Thug was arrested because he threatened to shoot a mall cop last week. Thug was kicked out of a Georgia mall for unknown reasons, and as he was being escorted out, he allegedly told one of the security guards that he would shoot him in the face, then left before police arrived.
