21 Savage reportedly turned himself into the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office on two charges and was quickly released on bond earlier this week.
According to BuzzFeed News, this was confirmed by the online DeKalb County Jail records which show that 21 Savage was booked on Wednesday night and released on bond just 12 minutes later. The listed charges are: possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and possession of a gun.
According to the online records, the alleged offenses occurred on February 2, 2019. Notably, on February 3, 2019, 21 Savage, who was born Shéyaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was taken into custody by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials. At the time, an ICE spokesman said that 21 Savage was an “unlawfully present United Kingdom national” who legally entered the United States in 2005 but overstayed his nonimmigrant visa, which expired in 2006. 21 Savage was released from custody 10 days after his arrest, and later said he was “definitely targeted” by officials.
Speaking to thr press, 21 Savage’s representatives said that the warrant for 21 Savage’s arrest was issued by the Dekalb County Police two weeks ago. “The warrant appears to have been sought at the behest of ICE,” it’s claimed in the press release.
According to BuzzFeed News, the warrant alleges that 21 Savage “threw out a bottle that had liquid in it that later tested positive for codeine, and that a handgun was found inside the car” on the night of the 2019 ICE arrest.
