Young Thug has accused the police of improper conduct in his felony drug case.
On Monday, the rapper’s lawyers filed paperwork calling for evidence to be thrown out in the case, specifically everything he said to the police following his arrest, reports The Blast.
The 27-year-old, whose real name is Jeffery Williams, claims that he was never read his Miranda Rights during the September 2017 arrest in Georgia at the center of the case.
He also reportedly claimed that the traffic stop that led to his arrest, for window tint, was “unlawful,” and dismissed the idea that he intended to sell the drugs.
In September, Thug was indicted on eight felony charges — including possession and intent to distribute marijuana, methamphetamine and hydrocodone — related to the arrest.
Last month, Young Thug had his bond revoked after he failed a drug test related to the case. He was released after six days in custody.
A rep for Thug did not respond to a request for comment.
