According to TMZ, Offset is a free man again, paying $17,000 in bail. He was released after going in front of a judge at an Atlanta courthouse Saturday morning, appearing on charges he had 3 guns and pot in his vehicle. During his court appearance, the lights went out and the hearing was held with flashlights. He was arrested outside of Atlanta Friday after cops discovered 3 guns and weed in his car during a traffic stop for an illegal lane change.

TMZ also reports that Offset’s lawyer Offset was unjustly targeted by police because he’s successful, wealthy, black and a rapper. He claims Offset broke no laws, and that the police used a lane change as a thinly veiled excuse to try and take the rapper down. Lawyer Drew Findling (who also represents Gucci Mane, Katt Williams and Trippie Redd) stated the following…

“It’s a common theme. We’re talking about a young, African-American man driving a shiny, beautiful luxury car and clad in designer clothes and watches and jewelry. Unfortunately people in his genre become a target for law enforcement who think that lifestyle is connected to some illegal activity … and that is a sad statement.”
