42 Dugg Arrested by Federal Agents After Failing to Turn Himself In

42 Dugg was arrested Thursday (May 5), in his hometown of Detroit, after returning from a trip to Memphis, Tennessee. 

According to The Detroit News, the CMG artist was arrested by federal agents after failing to surrender and serve a six-month prison sentence in West Virginia for illegally possessing a firearm. The sentencing is a result of a November 2020 incident where the 27-year-old allegedly fired a weapon inside of a gun range in Atlanta.

This is not the first time the “Thump Shit” rapper has gotten into trouble.

In 2011, 42 Dugg, born Dion Hayes, was convicted in his hometown for carjacking and firearms possessions. He was sentenced to three years probation after pleading guilty. However, that probation has since been revoked due to multiple violations, including being charged with obstruction of law enforcement and battery in Las Vegas, in addition to “multiple positive test results for use of controlled substances.”

These violations ultimately led to Hayes being sentenced to serve six months in West Virginia.

An arrest warrant was issued for Hayes after failing to turn himself in to law enforcement in April. After attending an NBA playoff game between the Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzles on Tuesday, May 3, 42 Dugg was apprehended after returning to Detroit on a private jet.
