American rapper Jeffery Lamar Williams, known professionally as Young Thug, has been left in jail after a judge refused to accept his bond over concerns that he could be a danger to the community.
Young Thug has been accused of conspiracy to violate Georgia’s RICO Act and participation in a criminal street gang.
Fulton County Judge, Ural Glanville rejected the bond saying he has a number of concerns about the entertainer, being a danger to the community.
The prosecuting team argued that Young Thug is the leader of the street gang, Young Slime Life, responsible for a number of deaths, shootings and carjackings over the past decade.
They added that he even promotes such acts in his music and on social media.
The prosecutors explained that Young Thug is “the top dog, the most dangerous man here, because he doesn’t have to get his hands dirty, he has others to do his business,” Atlanta station WXIA-TV reported.
