New Footage of Ty Dolla Sign’s Arrest for Marijuana and Cocaine Possession Surfaces
On Tuesday (June 11), four lengthy videos showing his arrest back on Sept. 5, 2018 and the circumstances surrounding it surfaced on YouTube. The first video details the arresting cops conducting a search of Ty's limousine van after a cop on duty walked by the vehicle and smelled marijuana. While the K-9 unit dogs barked erratically, police found 18.2 grams of marijuana, a small quantity of cocaine and thousands of dollars in cash.
The other videos show what happened after the search was conducted. In one clip, we can see and hear the arresting officers making calls to the District Attorney regarding Ty's arrest. In another video, we see cops talking to Ty in the police car. The final video shows Ty and some of his crew in handcuffs at the police station in Atlanta.
"He had no drugs on his person at all," Ty Dolla's attorney Drew Findling told Channel 2 Action News after the arrest. "Apparently, a small amount of some drug [was] found in the car, and they let five people walk away. And they let the international superstar go into custody."
Findling also added that his Ty had no prior criminal history before his arrest. After he was indicted on felony possession of cocaine, felony possession of THC and misdemeanor possession of less than one ounce of weed, Ty Dolla was subsequently released on $6,000 bond. In February, TMZ reported that Ty Dolla $ign accepted a plea deal and avoided jail time in the process.
