Gunna Denied Bond After Smuggling Incident

Earlier this year Atlanta rappers Gunna and Young Thug were arrested on a wide ranging RICO indictment [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Gunna has been denied bond and will remain in jail until trial after a failed attempt to smuggle in drugs...

The Atlanta rapper known as Gunna will stay in jail after a judge denied him bond Thursday. He’s charged in a major gang indictment.
Prosecutors said Thursday that Gunna is now tied to another incident that occurred at the Fulton County Jail in May.
Prosecutors say a nurse attempted to smuggle in a bag full of marijuana and cocaine on May 14, but when a deputy confronted her, she dropped it and then took off.
In court Thursday, prosecutors claimed that some of the drugs were intended for Gunna — a claim that his attorney calls false.
The judge cited concerns that the Atlanta rapper, whose real name is Sergio Kitchens, might threaten or intimidate witnesses if he were to release him ahead of trial.
