Complex is reporting that Young Thug, born Jeffery Lamar Williams, was arrested Monday evening (May 9) after the home he was at was raided and he is currently being held at Fulton County Jail.

According to public records, Young Thug and Gunna, real name Sergio Giavanni Kitchens, has reportedly been charged with one count of conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and participation in criminal street gang activity. The conspiracy charge stems from an alleged incident that occurred on January 24, 2013 while the gang charge is connected to an alleged offense from May 12, 2018. 

Officials say that Young Thug is one of three founders of the Young Slime Life, “a criminal street gang that started in late 2012” in Atlanta and YSL is affiliated with the national Bloods gang. Charges include “Preserving, protecting and enhancing the reputation, power and territory of the enterprise through acts of racketeering activity including murder, assault and threats of violence.”

Young Thug and Gunna are among 28 people associated with YSL that have been charged in a 56-count indictment on Monday.

Documents also show that Young Thug has been accused of renting an Infiniti Sedan to kill rival gang member, 26 year old Donovan Thomas, Jr. on January of 2015. The drive-by shooting also wounded two others. Christian “Big Bhris” Eppinger, who was also named in the 56-count indictment, was arrested earlier this year in the shooting of an Atlanta police officer. According to WSBTV, prosecutors are claiming that Eppinger and Antonio Sumlin asked Young Thug for permission to make an alleged second attempt on YFN Lucci’s life. YFN Lucci was allegedly stabbed while at Fulton Country Jail in February.

A press conference was held earlier today (Tuesday, May 10) after Young Thug’s appearance in court.
