Young Thug turned himself in to the Dekalb County Sheriff’s Department and was charged with five violations of the Georgia Controlled Substance Act. The sheriff’s department database shows that the rapper (real name: Jeffery Lamar Williams) was booked Tuesday afternoon.

The charges stem from a September 2017 arrest when Brookhaven police pulled over a 2016 Mercedes-Benz Maybach for its tint potentially being too dark during a traffic stop.
