Young Thug (real name: Jeffery Lamar Williams) has been released from jail on bond, public records viewed by Pitchfork confirm. Williams was indicted on eight felony charges on August 30.
He was booked into Georgia’s DeKalb County Jail on September 11 after he turned himself in to authorities. Records show that Williams was bonded out yesterday evening, September 13.
Williams’ sometime-partner Jerrika Karlae wrote on Instagram last night, “THE GOAT IS FREE,” according to HNHH. Pitchfork has contacted Young Thug’s representatives for comment and further information.
Williams faces eight felony drug and gun charges, stemming from a September 2017 arrest: possession of methamphetamine, hydrocodone, and marijuana with intent to distribute;
and possession of a firearm, an amphetamine, alprazolam (aka Xanax), and codeine (two counts). An arraignment is currently scheduled for November 8, public records show.
