In a viral video captured by court cameras, Young Thug has been accused of receiving drugs while in court. As jury selection for the YSL case involving Young Thug and 14 co-defendants is underway, WSB-TV‘s Michael Seiden uploaded a video to Twitter Thursday (Jan. 19) that allegedly showed Thugger involved in a drug deal in the middle of the hearing.

“My colleague @MarkWinneWSB just obtained surveillance video that shows the moment prosecutors accuse Young Thug and his co-defendant Kahlieff Adams of conducting a ‘hand-to-hand’ drug deal in court,” Seiden tweeted.
“Prosecutors say the surveillance shows Adams walk over to where Young Thug is seated with his attorney,” he continued. “And then drop a Percocet in his hand. A deputy confronts Young Thug and he turns over the pill to authorities.”
When Adams was searched by a deputy, more contraband was found on his person.
“They found him in possession of Percocet, marijuana, and tobacco wrapped in plastic and food seasonings to conceal the odor of weed, according to investigators,” Seiden added.
In the thread detailing the incident on Twitter, Seiden wrote that Adams had to be taken to the hospital after trying to ingest some of the contraband.

Thugger’s attorney, Keith Adams, said that his client immediately turned over the contraband to the deputy.
