Offset, who was released from prison three months ago after serving time on weapons and narcotics charges, has been arrested in Atlanta today for allegedly driving with a suspended license, TMZ reports.
Offset's attorney, Drew Findling, told TMZ, "Offset thought the $316 fine—for suspended license and failure to appear—had been paid when he got out of jail back in December." Offset is currently serving five years probation from the charges leveled against him at Georgia Southern University last year. According to his attorney, Offset will be held overnight and released on bail tomorrow morning.
A representative for Migos was not immediately available for comment.
Update 3/17/15 7:40 p.m.: Offset's lawyer: "I don't see it being an issue at all."
Reached by phone on Thursday evening, lawyer Drew Findling told The FADER that he does not believe this latest incident will be "an issue at all" for Offset in the long term.
"It won't interfere [with his probation], because it's not committing an offense," he explained, "it's just not realizing you hadn't paid a fine and paying it."
According to Findling, Offset's license was suspended due to an outstanding $316 fine that stemmed from a traffic violation in College Park prior to his arrest last April. The original ticket was written for $171, and when that went unpaid, he accrued an addition $145 charge for failure to appear in court.
Findling suspects the Migos rapper was incarnated on the date of his hearing, but said that, "They don't care, it's traffic court. They're going to institute a penalty and automatically by statute suspend your license for failure to pay."
"It will probably be resolved first thing tomorrow morning," he assured.
