Rapper Young Dro arrested before concert at Georgia college

Police say rapper Young Dro was arrested on gun and drug charges before a concert at a south-east Georgia college, the Associated Press reports.

The Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office says Dro was arrested Sunday outside the Performing Arts Centre 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.

Police say three others were arrested on drug charges.

Dro is known for his street anthems including We in Da City and Shoulder Lean. Last year he released his album Da Reality Show, through T.I.’s label Grand Hustle Records.

Dro is being held at Bulloch County Jail. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
