Atlanta, GA – Young Dro has reportedly received jail time for allegedly hitting his girlfriend and throwing banana pudding in her face this summer.
According to TMZ, Dro pleaded guilty to one count of battery/family violence last week. He was immediately sentenced to 12 months behind bars but was only ordered to serve 70 days. However, since he already has credit for 20 days served, he will spend considerably time behind bars for the incident.
In fact, a Fulton County Court official said he’ll get an extra day of credit for each day served with good behavior, meaning he could be out as early as October 5.
Dro will remain on probation for rest of his remaining 12-month sentence.
As part of his plea, Dro will have to submit to a drug/alcohol evaluation within 30 days of his release. He will also have to undergo domestic violence counseling, submit to random drug tests and forfeit all weapons.

There are a myriad of ways to get arrested, but throwing banana pudding at someone isn’t high on the list.
But according to TMZ, that’s exactly what happened to Young Dro on July 5 when he was taken into custody for weaponizing banana pudding. During a heated argument at his Atlanta apartment, Dro allegedly threw a plate of the yellow goo at his girlfriend.
The couple was reportedly fighting over money and decided to start hurling food at each other. The police were eventually called to the scene and when they arrived, the girlfriend said she didn’t want to press charges.
However, the officers arrested Dro anyway and slapped him with two counts of misdemeanor battery/family violence.
Dro has apparently been in jail ever since. Law enforcement sources say he’s being held on a child support contempt order. Legal documents explain he owes nearly $41,000 in back child support to the mother of his child and must come up with $10,000 of that amount to be released.
