Offset was released from jail Saturday, July 21, 2018. According to TMZ . After going in front of a judge at an Atlanta courthouse Saturday morning, appearing on charges he had 3 guns and pot in his vehicle.
The power went out in the courtroom but Offset was not detained. The court staff used flashlights and carried on with bail hearings. Supposedly, Offset bail was set for $17,000. Cardi B, Offset’s wife posted a pic of him and her on social media. The rap artist lawyer, Drew Findling tells TMZ,
…his client broke no laws, and cops used a lane change as a thinly veiled excuse to try and take the rapper down. We’re talking about a young African – American man driving a shiny, beautiful luxury car and clad in designer clothes and watches and jewelry. Unfortunately, people in his genre become a target for law enforcement who think that lifestyle is connected to some illegal activity… and that is a sad statement. -Offset’s Attorney Drew Findling
