Young Thug's attorney Keith Adams has claimed that his client had nothing to do with the hand to hand drug exchange with his co-defendant Kahlieff Adams. As previously reported, Thug and Adams were caught on camera conducting a hand to hand drug exchange inside the courtroom during jury selection. Judge Ural Glanville reportedly had to pause jury selection three times over drugs, arrests, and a health scare.
According to The Jasmine Brand, Adams said, “The reality is Mr. Williams had nothing to do with what went on in the courtroom yesterday. 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.”
Adams continued, “He did not know. We don’t know what it is, did not know. It was turned over to a deputy right away. The deputies took action, the individual who had the contraband, not Mr. Williams, was taken into the back. Where I’m told he ingested whatever he had. He had to be taken to the hospital and as a result court was terminated for the rest of the day.”
According to reports, deputies discovered Percocet, marijuana, tobacco, and other contraband wrapped in plastic and food seasoning on Kahlieff Adams.
Kahlieff Adams is now facing additional charges including – possession of schedule II controlled substance, willful obstruction of law enforcement misdemeanor, possession of marijuana less than one ounce, possession of alcoholic beverage by an inmate, and willful obstruction of law enforcement officers misdemeanor.
