Lately it seems that Atlanta-based trio Migos has made the news more often for their skirmishes with the law than their music.

The latest incident involving the “Versace” rappers finds member Offset being denied bond after being arrested on drug and gun charges following a concert at Georgia Southern University last month.

On April 18, the trio, along with 12 entourage members, were arrested as they were leaving the concert when authorities detected the scent of marijuana coming from the group’s vans. Group members Takeoff, Quavo, and six entourage members were quickly released on bond, but Offset and six other entourage members were denied bond.

While in custody, Offset, born Kiari Kendrell Cephus, got into a scuffle with another inmate and was charged with battery and inciting a riot. When it came time for another bond hearing, Judge John R. Turner of the Bulloch County Superior Court deemed him a flight risk and denied bond based on his past criminal record.

Offset was then escorted out of the courtroom and back into custody but not before letting off a series of insults and expletives directed at Judge Turner.

In addition to Offset’s bond denial, two of the remaining entourage members were denied bond as well, with the remaining four being granted bond under the condition that they never return to Bulloch County and refrain from contacting the other parties involved in the case.
