Two members of Migos were arrested Saturday night and charged with possession of a schedule II narcotic, and carrying a loaded firearm on school property.
According to TMZ, the Atlanta trio’s show at Georgia Southern University was interrupted by police who cracked down on their felonious concealment of illegal weapons and drugs. Quavo and Offset also face a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession, and Offset was additionally hit with another gun possession charge as he carried a weapon as a convicted felon.
Other members of the Migos’ camp and their associates were also reportedly detained in the sweep.
This isn’t the first time members of Migos have faced legal issues during scheduled performances. Last October, Offset was involved in a crowd brawl at a Springfield, Massachusetts show. Two months prior to that they were involved in a separate altercation with fans in Nashville, Tennessee, which revolved around a fan supposedly snatching a chain from the them while they were performing.
