This is stemming from an arrest in Atlanta back in July of 2018, but there is a small silver lining!
In July of last year, the rapper was pulled over for an improper lane change. Officers then ended up arresting him for possession of both a firearm and marijuana. It’s been a good amount of time since the initial incident, and reports have surfaced that Offset has now been formally charged in connection to the arrest with one felony charge and two misdemeanors.
TMZ has been told by the Atlanta DA’s office that charges were reportedly filed by prosecutors back in February. The outlet also says that they were told that Set’s initial charges include one count of a felony for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, and two misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession. These are in additional to charge for the original cause of the traffic stop, the improper lane change.
There is some good news though! The felony weapons charge ended up getting dropped, so now he’s actually only facing both of the misdemeanors and the traffic violation. Offset entered a not guilty plea in court last month, and his next appearance is in May.
Cardi B posted to her Instagram this afternoon upset that her husband is often only talked about for negative things in the media. She said he hasn’t been acknowledged for any of his good deeds such as a $25K donation to kids in Africa or an of his business moves he’s made lately. We’re hoping for the best outcome for the Cephus fam. Check out Offset’s post below about the real estate investments they’ve been making in ATL, he said in his caption “@iamcardib WE BUYING THE BLOCK RIP NIP THE MARATHON CONTINUES”. Love that!
