Rapper Young Thug arrested

The ATL’s Young Thug was arrested Monday in Atlanta’s wealthy area called Buckhead and was among 28 people listed in an 88-page indictment filed on Sunday in Fulton County Superior Court.

Thug was charged with participation in criminal street activity and conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, according to the indictment. The indictment outlines specific charges against Williams and his 27 associates.  They form a group called YSL.

The indictment lists more than 180 acts that support just the first of the 56 separate charges handed down to the various members of the YSL. Among those other charges are murder, aggravated assault, firearms violations, theft, drug possession, participating in street gang activity, armed robbery, and carjacking between 2012 and 2020.

Right now, Williams is only charged with those two counts, but is listed in the indictment as being one of the YSL founders along with Walter Murphy and Trontavious Stephen.
