Yung Joc Misses Arraignment on Weapons Charge, Bond Doubled

Atlanta rapper Yung Joc failed to appear at an arraignment hearing in Cleveland this morning and has had his bond raised to $100,000. According to the Associated Press, Joc was a no-show at the Cuyahoga County courthouse, where he was expected to answer to charges of carrying a concealed weapon. Joc was arrested on Monday (December 24) at Ohio’s Hopkins International Airport when security personnel discovered a semiautomatic weapon in his carry on luggage as the rapper tried to board a Delta Airlines flight. Stanley Jackson Jr., Joc’s attorney, told the court that his client was busy with family and personal obligations. Cuyahoga County assistant prosecutor Gayle Williams is expected to ask the court to issue an arrest warrant for the rapper. Municipal Judge Michael John Ryan advised Jackson that his client must appear in court and doubled the “Coffee Shop” star’s bond from the previous amount of $50,000.

  • niggafrommemphis

    The only reason I’m postin this comment is to say I’m not commenting on this bullshit no mo whether it’s the south east west or whereever.I’m startin to believe that niggas ain’t that stupid and bad publicity is better than none.So to the ho ass niggas in the east who love to talk shit,man up and admit your shit need some upgrading.After all,Joc might as well be on bad boy,bad boy south doesn’t mean anything as far as the south is concerned,that includes my niggas 8ball and Mjg,but I seriously doubt they toting thangs in planes.

  • K_Lang

    Yo, first off, who the hell u think u are missing court and sending ur lawyer?! Second this IS a publicity stunt, cuz i aint never heard no one say that yung joc is hard. He wanna be Jeezy. Now he toting guns and getttin warrants, u is gangsta now n*gga. You a cerified hard nigga. This is all about a felony. To be a certified gangsta rapper u need a felony.

  • Rednose pit bull

    will people quit thinking that every time a dumb rapper getts popped for stupid shit that its a publicity stunt..what he did ws fucking dumb because hes a fucking idiot,publicity stunts are made to make u look good or hard,not make u look stupid as fuck..he did this because hes stupid,noone would make them selves look that stupid on purpose,hes just really that fucking stupid..he probley took a gun on an airplane before and our stupid security did not notice so the fucking idiot though he can do it plublicity stunt,just stupidity

  • Rednose pit bull

    if it was a felny for publicity,then hed have done something to look good or hard,not something this stupid..hes just a fucking idiot,and anyone why thinks he did that just for publicity,then ur a fucking idiot too..HES JUST A FUCKING IDIOT

  • Jerod

    I think every time an artist gets arrested, it’s very meticulously planned out and executed for publicity and public image. “Mayne I gots ta keeps it real up in hurr mayne ya kna mean? Ya kna i be gangsta when I gets muhself arrested on purpose ya kna mean? fa real lil’ niggas.”

    Skipping an arraignment is just plain stupid though.


    K- lang you fool this is no stunt, and you don’t know the real world. A fully loaded firearm, in an airport is a very serious charge, besides the local courts , and the FEDs will pick it up.If you can’t beat that case run! F the judge and the DA they were going to wash your black ass joc anyways so enjoy all that you can before they catch up with you.

    Oh and thanks for the certified compliment, I got two of those hot ones.

  • jc-usda

  • Rockcity

    What the fuck do regions have to do with the story????????????? Bad Publicity is better than none?????? With thoughts like that, the south will stay losing, Naw but 4real north south, east, west, a Dumb ass is a dumb ass. Joc should be locked up ne way for killing hip hop, I guess the more money u make the more blind u become to reality.
