Migos Rapper Offset Unleashed A Profanity-laden Tirade At A Georgia Judge On Friday (08may15) After He Was Denied Bond In His Drugs And Weapons Case.
The hip-hop star, real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus, has been held without bail ever since a police raid during a concert at Georgia Southern University last month (Apr15) led to the arrests of Offset and his fellow group members Quavo and Takeoff.
They were all booked for drug possession, marijuana possession, possession of firearms in a school safety zone, and possession of firearms during the commission of a crime, but Quavo and Takeoff were subsequently released on bail.
Offset was remanded in custody due to a prior felony conviction, but his lawyer filed a new request for bond and they headed back to Bulloch County Superior Court on Friday to have the motion heard.
However, Judge John R. Turner rejected the request, deeming Offset a flight risk and citing his past criminal activity, prompting the rapper to turn the air blue and lash out at the judge as he was led out of court in handcuffs.
Offset is also facing additional charges of battery and causing a riot in a penal institution after he allegedly brawled with a fellow inmate while behind bars at Bulloch County Jail last weekend (02May15).
Migos' legal troubles recently forced the group to postpones its North American tour.
