He was charged with an improper lane change, marijuana possession, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime. He has been released on bond, the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to the AJC. His attorney, Drew Findling, told People that the rapper was “concerned, very concerned” about Cardi and the baby after his arrest. “Of course his new baby is his top priority as well as his other children,” he said.

Offset was arrested in 2016 for driving with a suspended license in Atlanta, and spent time in jail in 2015 after being arrested on drug and gun charges during a concert at Georgia Southern University.
