Lawyers for Young Thug have revealed the rapper was “stunned” when a co-defendant handed off a prescription pill last week in court, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

Thugger’s co-defendant Kahlieff Adams conducted a “hand-to-hand” exchange of drugs, according to the prosecution. Since then, a motion filed by the rapper’s legal team says the prosecution made the drug exchange accusation to portray the rapper in a negative manner for the jury and the public.

Attorneys for Young Thug said, “It is patently clear from the images that there was no communication, solicitation, or request from Mr. Williams prior to that.” From there, the attorneys explained, “It is absolutely bewildering as to why the state would blatantly misrepresent the reason for the cessation of courtroom activities in its motion when it knew that assertion was inaccurate.” Previously, it was noted that Thug gave the drugs to the courtroom deputy that was right “in front of him.” Stay tuned for more updates.
