It has previously been reported that Offset had been serving five years of probation in relation to a 2015 arrest on drugs and weapons charges but Offset's lawyer, Drew Findling, told the Journal-Constitution that Offset received an early termination of that probation.

He was then released after posting $17,000 bail and appearing in front of a judge at an Atlanta courthouse on Saturday morning, according to the site. Cardi B was not in the vehicle when the arrest took place.
