Young Thug Arrested for Missing Court Date
According to TMZ, officers were responding to a stolen vehicle report and were looking for a suspect in the mall. During their search for the suspect, one of the cops recognized Thugger walking through the mall and remembered he'd recently skipped a court date for excessive window tinting. The cops arrested Thug for the warrant, booked him and released him on $500 bond.

For real, though: who can blame Thugger for wanting to tint his windows? As one of the biggest names in hip-hop at the moment, it makes sense that he wouldn't want to get recognized in his own car. It's also a safety issue.
It's been a rough couple weeks since Thug spazzed on a couple airport employees, calling them names and offering them money to quit their jobs. First, he got dropped while trying to crowd surf at a concert in New York City. And, yesterday, he was booked for missing a court date, which must've been another annoying ordeal.
“I think people only care about what affects them. It’s selfish, but I think it’s the truth,” he says. “If they are not affected by being poor, they don’t typically fight for it. I remember not having anything, so I want to always stay involved. Whenever I go back to my side of town – Cleveland Ave – I know I have to bring money, because there’ll be friends or cousins or people I knew from 6th grade who are going to ask me for money. My fiancée always says I look like Santa Claus, because I’m just giving everyone something.”
