Young Dro Arrested for Allegedly Throwing Pudding at Girlfriend: Report
Young Dro is reportedly sitting in jail because he allegedly turned his dessert into a weapon.
According to a report TMZ published Monday (July 22), Dro was arrested on July 5 after an argument with his girlfriend turned violent. A source close to Dro tells the celebrity gossip site that the "Shoulder Lean" rapper and his girlfriend got into an argument about money at their home in Atlanta.
Once the argument got heated, both Dro and his girlfriend hurled whatever food was in front of them at each other, including a plate of banana pudding. Shortly after Dro reportedly threw the dessert at the woman, the police were called. The source claims that Dro's girlfriend did not want to press charges against the rapper, but police arrested him anyway.
Young Dro, who was part of XXL's inaugural Freshman Class, is reportedly behind bars for the food fight. He's facing two counts of misdemeanor battery/family violence, but that's not all he's being held for. Law enforcement officials say Dro is also being held on a child support contempt order. The rapper reportedly owes almost $41,000 in back child support and would need to pay $10,000 to be released from custody.
Dro's child support case stems from a previous relationship and has nothing to do with his current case. However, sources close to Dro say that he's been caught up with his child support fees and believes a clerical error is to blame.
XXL has reached out to Dro's camp for comment.
