STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) — Police say rapper Young Dro was arrested on gun and drug charges before a concert at a southeast Georgia college.
The Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office says Dro was arrested Sunday outside the Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern University. The 37-year-old, whose real name is D’Juan Montreal Hart, is charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, carrying a weapon in a school safety zone and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
