Young Thug and Gunna were arrested in Atlanta, charged with 2 gang counts
According to WSBTV’s Michael Seiden, Young Thug and Gunna are among 28 people linked to YSL who were indicted in a 56-count indictment on Monday. Young Thug, real name Jeffery Lamar Williams, was arrested and brought to the Fulton County Jail. According to jail documents, the Punk artist has been charged with conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and involvement in illegal street gang activity.
The conspiracy charge originates from an alleged event on January 24, 2013, while the gang charge is linked to a May 12, 2018 alleged act. Gunna, whose true name is Sergio Giavanni Kitchens, is said to have been charged with one count of RICO conspiracy.
Thug is accused of renting a car that was used in the 2015 drive-by shooting that killed 26-year-old Donovan Thomas and injured two others. Christian “Big Bhris” Eppinger, who is mentioned in the 56-count indictment, was detained earlier this year in connection with the shooting of an Atlanta police officer. Prosecutors believe that Eppinger and Antonio Sumlin sought Thug for permission to make a second attempt on YFN Lucci’s life, according to WSBTV. In February, Lucci was allegedly stabbed at Fulton Country Jail.
