Jefferey Lamar Williams aka ‘Young Thug’ was arrested at an Atlanta mall Thursday evening.
Atlanta Police report officers were at the mall responding to a stolen vehicle report but they soon spotted Thugga, who had a warrant against him.
After recovering the vehicle, officers began patrolling the mall for possible criminal behavior during holiday shopping hours and spotted Williams, 25, who was there Christmas shopping for his family.
The officers spotted Williams, 25, who officers confirmed had an active warrant in Atlanta after failing to appear in court.
The rapper was taken into custody with $2,500 dollars on his person that was given to him by undisclosed family member prior to transport.

The popular entertainer was apparently not in custody long, as he posted the video below while dining in Waffle House shortly after being released…
