As part of the sentence, Octave, 19, was ordered to complete an anger management/life skills course. Octave’s original 364-day sentence was then reduced to 180 days plus time-served.

The original house arrest sentence stemmed from Octave’s 2016 conviction on robbery and kidnapping charges.

Octave was found guilty of violating the terms of his probation on April 26 for going to a strip club, attending a boxing match and disrupting an anger management class.

According to TMZ, officers were responding to a stolen vehicle report and were looking for a suspect in the mall. During their search for the suspect, one of the cops recognized Thugger walking through the mall and remembered he’d recently skipped a court date for excessive window tinting. The cops arrested Thug for the warrant, booked him and released him on $500 bond.

For real, though: who can blame Thugger for wanting to tint his windows? As one of the biggest names in hip-hop at the moment, it makes sense that he wouldn’t want to get recognized in his own car. It’s also a safety issue.
It’s been a rough couple weeks since Thug spazzed on a couple airport employees, calling them names and offering them money to quit their jobs. First, he got dropped while trying to crowd surf at a concert in New York City. And, yesterday, he was booked for missing a court date, which must’ve been another annoying ordeal.

In other Young Thug-related news, the ATL artist recently spoke with Paper Magazine and talked about his desire to help fight poverty in Atlanta this holiday season.
“I think people only care about what affects them. It’s selfish, but I think it’s the truth,” he says. “If they are not affected by being poor, they don’t typically fight for it. I remember not having anything, so I want to always stay involved. Whenever I go back to my side of town – Cleveland Ave – I know I have to bring money, because there’ll be friends or cousins or people I knew from 6th grade who are going to ask me for money. My fiancée always says I look like Santa Claus, because I’m just giving everyone something.”
