Young Thug Codefendants Accused In Prison Stabbing
Authorities accused three of Young Thug’s codefendants of a prison stabbing. Moreover, YSL members Bhris, Bali, and Lil Rod allegedly stabbed another inmate in Fulton County Jail, according to county Sheriff Pat Labat’s words to WSB-TV. While YSL’s sprawling RICO case is underway, these members could face completely new charges. Still, officials haven’t shared additional details about the attack, such as the identity and status of the victim. However, Rodalius “Lil Rod” Ryan and Damone “Bali” Blalock are serving life in prison due to separate murder charges. Meanwhile, officials accused Christian “Bhris” Eppinger of a February 2022 shooting against an Atlanta police officer.
Furthermore, Eppinger also allegedly stabbed YFN Lucci in Fulton County Jail last February along with another YSL member. Both Eppinger and Antonio “Obama” Sumlin (who since took a plea deal) sought Thugger’s permission to make another attempt on Lucci’s life, according to prosecutors. However, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution obtained a statement from Ryan’s attorney Angela D’Williams maintaing her client’s innocence in the stabbing. “Mr. Ryan is hopeful that there is a thorough investigation and that there is not a rush to judgement,” she said. “Mr. Ryan maintains his innocence regarding this incident.”
Meanwhile, officials hit Ryan with additional charges for delaying trial proceedings, for which jury selection began last month. Moreover, authorities described Ryan as an “ongoing problem.” Also, he allegedly spat in a deputy sheriff’s face while awaiting court transportation on January 23. Additionally, the court implicated Ryan in the alleged drug deal involving Thug and YSL codefendant Khalieff Adams. Moreover, Adams stands accused of passing his label leader a single Percocet pill during court session.
While Young Thug faces eight charges and awaits trial, people in his circle shared he’s still in good spirits. Moreover, this support comes after a video of him looking tired and defeated in court went viral. “I be talking to him, he’s blessed man,” Metro Boomin expressed last month to DJ Drama. “Anybody know Slime know he got a heart of gold, but he got the heart of a warrior at the same time, so he got his head up.” As always, come back to HNHH for the latest developments in the YSL case.
