Migos Denied Bail After Drugs And Guns Arrests (PHOTO)
The members of Migos were denied bail on Monday, two days after they were arrested during a drug bust at Georgia Southern University.
As Gossip Cop reported, the rap trio was in the midst of performing at the school’s “Spring Bling” concert when their show was stopped short after on-site police detected “a very potent smell” of marijuana coming from their vans. The stars and their entourage of 12 were questioned, and the vehicles were searched, leading to the arrest of all 15 people. While it was initially reported that only Quavo (real name: Quavious Marshall) and Offset (real name: Kiari Cephus) were busted, it turns out Takeoff (real name: Kirshnik Ball) was taken into custody, too.
All three are facing charges of drug possession, marijuana possession, possession of firearms in a school safety zone, and possession of firearms during the commission of a crime. In a statement, Bulloch County Sheriff’s Department officials said, “These discoveries were intensely concerning as the drugs and firearms had been brought to a university sponsored event where over a thousand students were congregated.”
An angry judge in a court hearing on Monday morning agreed, and denied bond for the three men. The news quickly spread on Twitter, along with photos of them in black and white jail garb (see below). Although it has not been disclosed what drug Migos had besides weed, the irony that they have been denied bail on 420 has not been lost on fans, who have turned “Migos” into a trending topic in the United States and worldwide.
There are reports, however, that a challenge to the decision is underway, with $10,000 bail offered for Quavo and Takeoff. Offset is the one mostly likely to stay behind bars for not only bringing a gun to a school campus, but doing so while already a convicted felon. Gossip Cop will have updates. What do you think of the situation?
