Struggle and Young Thug are becoming fast friends and the 21-year-old rapper is just getting started with his career.

While Mr. Thug, real name Jeffery Williams, may or may not be signed to Cash Money Records, he most certainly signed his name with documents for the Atlanta Police Department to conduct an arrest after cops say he was “driving in a circular or zig-zag motion” without a seatbelt, and had an outstanding warrant stemming from a drug possession.

Rapper Young Thug was reportedly arrested today in his home city of Atlanta. An anonymous source close to the artist told Complex that reports of the arrest were extremely reliable and added that details were still vague. The reason for the arrest allegedly “started as a traffic violation” but may have escalated.

When contacted for comment, the Atlanta Police Deparment stated that it could not disclose information about arrests.

Through the Fulton County, GA Inmate Records website, Complex has learned that Young Thug was charged yesterday with “Possession Of A Schedule IV Controlled Substance, Driving Without Seat Belt, Reckless Conduct, Driving In Circular Or Zig-Zag Course ‘Laying Drags,” and Reckless Driving.

Young Thug quickly rose to fame in late 2013 for his unorthodox appearance as a rapper and viral MP3 “Danny Glover” which even caught the attention of Kanye West and a remix with Nicki Minaj. He publicly announced that he was signed to Cash Money Records on February 16, although no other details were made available for an album release.

Double down on that statement for the news on his bail amount. Hit the flip to see his struggliciouis mug shot, though.
