Migos may ride a little differently after this one. They found themselves held up by the police after someone tipped authorities off about possible illegal substances in the group’s possession.
The cops hauled off with 26 ounces of codeine and Xanax alongside a little less than a pound of weed after they stopped Migos’ tour bus this week. Pulling the group’s bus over in North Carolina, authorities caught three entourage members slippin’.
The Holmes Center
Following a performance at The Holmes Center in Boone, NC on Thursday (April 5), security personnel alerted local police, reporting that the rap trio’s tour bus reeked of marijuana. Not long afterwards, authorities boarded the bus to find the infamous cough syrup, stacks of weed wrapped in plastic bags and a few weed cookies.
In connection with the ounces of illegal drugs, NC officers arrested one person, who is still unnamed, for felony possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of codeine. Meanwhile two others, who are also unidentified, were cited for marijuana, codeine and Xans.
According to TMZ, Quavo and Takeoff were in the clear during the bust, leaving the stop without any trouble. Offset was reportedly not at the performance nor on the bus at the time of the search.
While the group left North Carolina unbothered, the Georgia natives should really be more careful. Around this time last month, reports that they were being accused of inciting a dangerous riot sparked. According to Page Six, Albany Basketball & Sports Corporation, owners of the Washington Avenue Armory, is suing Migos for “encouraging, cheering and inciting the patrons to fight” during a performance which took place about three years ago. The concert in question took place in Albany, New York and resulted in numerous concertgoers getting harmed.
Just within NY’s statue of limitations for filing personal injury and property damage claims, the suit is the result of a March 2015 concert gone terribly wrong. Quavo, Takeoff and Offset allegedly agitated fans by arriving late (with a crew “that appeared intoxicated, wreaked of marijuana and reportedly under the influence of other controlled substances”) and under the influence of weed and alcohol themselves.
The documents insinuate that had the trio not prompted fans to “fight, ‘give them hell’ and kick a**,” there would have been no violence. As the suit — which is seeking damages for a yet-to-be-revealed amount — puts it, the “riot” started by the rap group “caused patrons to be stabbed, robbed, beaten, severely harmed and injured as the defendants continued to incite a select group of individuals to continue the onslaught of attacks, assaults and destruction of the premises.”
The allegations also state that Migos skipped out on a meet-and-greet, which fans paid for prior to attending the show. The meet-and-greet supposedly started 9 p.m. but the group arrived hours later. Aside from being late, the rappers’ behavior was found to be unacceptable.
“Despite the severity of the incident the defendants were seen laughing and egging the crowd on as metal gates were ripped from the ground and thrown into the crowd,” the paperwork goes on.
Though the amount is undisclosed, it is assumably six figures or more. The company’s leaders allege that the fiasco lead the venue to lose its liquor license and acquire bills for canceled shows and fixing property damage alongside garnering tons of bad publicity.
