Gunna’s Family, Friends, & Supporters Threatened w/ Arrest For Making Outbursts During Latest Courtroom Hearing


Gunna’s Family, Friends, & Supporters Threatened w/ Arrest For Making Outbursts During Latest Courtroom Hearing

Seems like the tension surrounding rap star Gunna’s continuous bond denials is stirring up frustration in his loved ones.

The judge presiding over the YSL RICO indictment was seen on video threatening to arrest the rapper’s supporters recently, seemingly due to failing to follow courtroom etiquette. As previously reported, Sergio ‘Gunna‘ Kitchens, 29, was detained back in May of this year in connection to RICO charges brought by his hometown Atlanta. His close associate, Jeffrey ‘Young Thug‘ Williams, 31, and 28 others were arrested as well and hit with felony charges.

The recent courtroom debacle seems to be caused by the “Drip Too Hard” artist’s failed attempts to be bonded out. Gunna’s lawyers have filed motions now four times, requesting the rapper be released ahead of his 2023 trial. During the video clip of the recent hearing, the court judge Ural D. Glanville can be heard stating:

“like I said, I will try the case as expeditiously as possible. But at this point in time, I don’t find any change in circumstances that would move me from changing my decision as to bond.”

It seems the judge was referring to Gunna’s fourth bond motion submitted earlier this month. As faint inaudible responses can be heard to Glanville’s comment, he continued :

“If anybody’s in the gallery, and you can’t otherwise control yourself or you want to make inappropriate comments, then you can leave at this point in time. No harm will come or nothing else will occur….But if you remain in this courtroom and make any outbursts, I’ll have you arrested.”

Following the judge’s remarks, some of the hearing’s attendees, who were presumably Gunna’s family, friends, and supporters, got up to leave. Though Glanville has denied the musician’s previous bond motions, Gunna’s lawyers are adamant there is not enough evidence tied to their client to keep him in jail. Aspiring attorney Kim Kardashian and many others have spoken up regarding the case, agreeing with his lawyers’ argument. However, prosecutors reportedly argued against the rapper’s release, claiming they’ve tied him to the murders of two rival gang members.

Earlier this month, however, while denying the rapper’s third bond attempt, Judge Glanville stated he’s concerned about witness intimidation should the rap star be released. The court official added he’d be open to hearing other bond motions in the future. Gunna is currently awaiting a verdict in his most recent bond appeal. The YSL trial is currently slated to begin in January of next year.
