More details have been released about the Thursday arrest of Young Dro.

At Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Clayton County Police Department Airport Interdiction officers conducted a “consensual encounter” with a passenger later identified as D’Juan Hart (Dro’s birth name).

A Georgia Crime Information Center/National Crime Information Center check on Hart disclosed that he was wanted by the Atlanta Police Department for a traffic offense.

After the warrant was confirmed and Hart, 37, was placed under arrest, officers conducted a search of his person and found a pill and a half of Xanax (Alprazolam).

Hart was taken to Clayton County Jail Thursday afternoon and booked for the active Atlanta Police Department warrant as well as being in possession of a controlled substance.

He was released Friday morning.
