Cops: Rapper Young Thug threatened to shoot mall security guard in the face.

U.S. marshals arrested the rapper, whose real name is Jeffery Lamar Williams, Wednesday morning on a warrant by Dunwoody police. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force says Williams was apprehended without incident at a home in Sandy Springs and was taken to the DeKalb County jail. Young Thug was arrested over an outstanding warrant issued by the Dunwoody police, and he was charged with making “terroristic threats” at a previous incident. “Williams was wanted on an outstanding warrant charging him with terroristic threats stemming from an incident that occurred with the jurisdiction of the Dunwoody police,” U.S. Williams, who was born in Sylvan Hills, is perhaps best known for his recent single “Stoner” and is a member of Gucci Mane’s Atlanta-based record label.

In 2013, his 1017 Thug release made Rolling Stone’s list of the 10 best mixtapes of the year, and “Picachu” made Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 best songs of the year. The rapper’s song “Stoner” was a Number Five rap hit last year, and his single “Check” made the Hot 100 earlier this year. “Anyone can rap if you’ve got brains,” Young Thug told Rolling Stone last December about how he fell into making music. “So I just went with it.” 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.
