Last week, after finishing up a show at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, rap group Migos’ tour bus was pulled over by police, and three members of the entourage were arrested after finding drugs onboard.
Police pulled over the bus on a traffic stop at Highway 105 after reportedly smelling the stench of marijuana, according to the Greensboro News & Record. One man was charged and two others were given citations after police found 420 grams of weed and 26 ounces of codeine and Xanax. Billboard reports that none of these men were members of Migos. Quavo and Takeoff were “free to go” and Offset was not present, since he was attending Cardi B’s listening party for her debut record, Invasion of Privacy.
The men arrested, Greensboro News & Record reports, are Jharon Ahmad Murphy and Dominic Kevin Spigner, both 26, and Daryl Irvon McPherson, 25. Murphy was charged with “felonious possession of marijuana with intent to sale/deliver and misdemeanor possession of a Schedule V controlled substance.” McPherson faces misdemeanors for possession of marijuana and codeine, and Spigner faces a misdemeanor charge for possession of Xanax.
It’s unclear whether or not members of Migos were involved with the drugs found on the bus; Digital Music News described the escaped charges as “maybe some quick-thinking (or shady payouts).”
This isn’t the first time Migos were involved with criminal charges. Over the past few years, the group has faced charges involving drugs, firearms, fights, and various other misdemeanors. Last month, Migos was sued for allegedly inciting a riot in 2015, where several people ended up getting stabbed. The suit, which was filed by the venue, Washington Avenue Armory, claims that the group “caused patrons to be stabbed, robbed, beaten, severely harmed, and injured …” and as the events took place, Migos were “laughing and egging the crowd on as metal gates were ripped from the ground and thrown into the crowd.” They are also being sued by a fan who was maimed during the riot.
