Offset Set Free After Arrest
Page Six reports that Offset was released on Friday, July 20, after posting bail amounting to $17,000. His bodyguard, who was at the vehicle at the time of the arrest, was also taken into custody and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime. It is unclear if he, too, was released this weekend.
Offset also gave an update to fans, saying that he was coming home. He also thanked his lawyer, Drew Findling, for getting him off the hook.
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THIS MAN LAWYER/FRIEND HE HAS TAUGHT ME ALOT ABOUT GETTING MORE INVOLVED IN COMMUNITY HE HELPS ME FINANCIALLY OUTSIDE THE COURT ROOM HE IS THE BEST LAWYER I KNOW I LOVE HIM TO DEATH @drewfindlingnull
According to Findling, the "MotorSport" rapper was very worried about his family, especially his newborn Kulture Kiari, while behind bars.
"He is concerned, very concerned, about [Cardi B]," he said. "Of course his new baby is his top priority as well as his other children."
The celebrity lawyer also argued that his client did not do anything wrong. Offset neither committed any traffic violation nor was he in possession of a weapon at the time of the arrest, claimed Findling.
The arrest took place a few weeks after Offset was involved in a car crash in Atlanta. He received minor injuries and was rushed to the hospital. Immediately after, Rapper was sent home to recuperate.
He will soon be heading on tour with the rest of Migos and Drake this month as part of "Aubrey & The Three Migos." The North American trek kicks off on July 26, Thursday, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
