Rapper Jeffery Williams, who also is known as “Young Thug,” faces drug and weapons charges in Sandy Springs in addition to charges brought by Dunwoody police that he threatened to shoot a security guard.

Sandy Springs police added the drug and weapons charges on July 16, the day after after the 22-year-old Williams’ arrest at his home at 315 Glenlake Drive in Sandy Springs. Williams, who is being held at the DeKalb Jail, faces charges of making terroristic threats against the security guard, police said.

Channel 2 Action News also has reported that Williams also is named in a Cobb County indictment as being involved in a conspiracy to kill rapper Lil Wayne, whose tour bus was shot in April. Williams has not been charged in connection with the incident, reports.
