Legal issues

Prior to fame

When Migos first rose to prominence in 2013, Offset was incarcerated in Georgia's Dekalb County jail for violating his probation that he had received due to prior felony convictions for burglary and theft1043

2015: Georgia Southern University concert incident

On April 18, 2015, Migos were scheduled to headline Georgia Southern University's 2015 Spring concert at Hanner Fieldhouse The show started at 7:00 pm with local opening acts; however, the group took the stage nearly an hour and a half later than their scheduled 9:00 pm set time Although their performance contract stipulated a minimum 45 minute set length, the group performed for less than 30 minutes before leaving the stage The University Police Department, the Statesboro Police Department and the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office, who were present at the concert as security detail, detected a strong scent of marijuana from the group's vans, and the drivers were questioned by law enforcement Upon further investigation, the rap trio and 12 members of their entourage were arrested for possession of marijuana and another controlled substance, possession of firearms within a school safety zone, possession of firearms during the commission of a crime, and possession of firearms by convicted felons4445

On April 20, 2015, Takeoff, Quavo, and six members of their entourage were released on bond by the Bulloch County District Attorney's Office while Offset and six others remained in custody without bond While university officials were aware of Migos' reputation, the group was allowed to perform as the student body had voted to have the group perform among seven acts that were up for consideration, and student fees and ticket sales were used to pay for the concert46 According to the performance contract, the group were to be paid $30,000 with their promoter Big House Collective receiving an additional $3,000 University officials initially sought to put Migos in breach of contract due to the group's late arrival, shortened performance, and possession of contraband on university property; however, the university ultimately paid half of the agreed upon fees4748 As a result of their arrests, on April 28, 2015, Migos announced they would postpone their Yung Rich Nation Tour until July49

On May 2, 2015, Offset, while in custody, received additional charges of battery and inciting a riot within a penal facility after attacking another inmate, causing severe injury50 In a bond hearing before Bulloch County Superior Court Judge John R Turner on May 8, 2015, Offset was formally denied bond based on his prior criminal record as well as the then-recent jail fight During the hearing, two members of Migos' entourage were also denied bonds while four others were granted bonds and were barred from returning to Bulloch County as a condition of their release Also, Judge Turner directed the four who were released not to make contact with anyone involved in the case Offset's attorney argued that the rap trio were unfairly profiled by law enforcement and that officers had failed to prove ownership of the firearms and illicit drugs found within the two vans; however, the prosecution responded that law enforcement were present at the concert for the safety of the students and public at-large due to Migos' history of violence Upon hearing the decision, Offset shouted obscenities as he was escorted out of the courtroom51

After eight months in custody, Offset was released on December 4, 2015, after accepting an Alford plea deal The plea deal dropped the gun, drug, and gang-related charges in exchange for pleading guilty to inciting a riot within a penal facility; paying a $1,000 fine; serving five years probation; and banishment from Bulloch, Effingham, Jenkins, and Screven Counties Takeoff, facing misdemeanor marijuana charges, also accepted a plea deal and was sentenced with 12 months' probation Quavo pleaded no contest to misdemeanor marijuana charges and received a 12-month sentence, which was suspended based on payment of fines52

2016-2017: Continued legal issues

On March 17, 2016, Offset was arrested for driving with a suspended license in Atlanta but was released the next day without having charges filed against him8 Offset has since claimed his license was never suspended and the police detained him without probable cause53

On July 7, 2017, Takeoff was asked to leave a flight from Atlanta to Des Moines, Iowa, after he reportedly refused to move his bag from the floor to an overhead storage bin prior to takeoff54
