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.
