Fulton County prosecutors in Atlanta filed a motion to document their belief that co-defendants Young Thug and Kahlieff Adams conducted a surreptitious “hand-to-hand” drug exchange during the trial in court. 

Atlanta’s WSB-TV reporter Michael Seiden posted the video that he said his WSB co-worker Mark Winne obtained. The footage, according to the news station, reportedly “shows the moment prosecutors accuse Young Thug and his co-defendant Kahlieff Adams of conducting a ‘hand-to-hand’ drug deal in court.”

According to what prosecutors shared in court that was recorded by Seiden, Young Thug was busted with the drug in his hand and authorities made him hand over a pill he was given by Adams.

Worse for the defendants, authorities then confronted Adams who allegedly possessed other drugs on him. 

The news outlet added that Adams looked like he visibly ingested other contraband to try to “conceal the extent of his crimes within the courtroom.”

As a result of the alleged findings by prosecutors and investigators, Adams was immediately transferred to Grady Memorial Hospital a few blocks away in downtown Atlanta to find out what those contraband items are. 

Young Thug’s attorney vehemently denies prosecutors’ accusation that his client and co-defendant Adams tried to exchange drugs in the Fulton County Superior Court.

“Mr. Williams had nothing to do with what went on in the courtroom yesterday,” Keith Adams said. “One of the co-defendants on his way to the restroom attempted to pass something to Mr. Williams, who immediately turned it over to the deputy.”
