There has been no order in the court during Young Thug’s recent proceedings.
During his court appearance on Wednesday, Thug allegedly received a Percocet pill from one of his codefendants, Kahlieff Adams, in a quick “hand to hand” transaction.
HipHopDX shared verbiage from the motion filed by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
“Defendant Kahlieff Adams stood up from his chair inside courtroom 1c and walked unattended to where defendant Jeffery Lamar Williams aka Young Thug, was seated at the counsel table next to his attorney.”
The motion continued, “Defendant Adams approached defendant Williams and extended a closed right hand toward defendant Williams. Defendant Williams extended his open right hand toward defendant Adams’ closed right hand and accepted an item of contraband, to wit: Percocet, from inside defendant Adams’ hand.”
In a statement released to Rolling Stone, Thug’s lawyer, Brian Steel, stated Thug “does not even know Mr. Adams.”
Courtroom surveillance tapes caught the alleged handoff between Adams and Thug, and WSBTV shared the footage.
Officers in the courtroom saw the transaction and proceeded to confiscate the pill from the 31-year-old rapper.
