Both Gaulden, 19, and Thigpen were charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, the release said.
They were taken to the City of Atlanta Jail.
Gaulden, whose known for his Billboard Hot 100 charting single "Outside Today," has had run-ins with the law before. In early 2017, he was arrested on two counts of attempted first-degree murder, according to the Baton Rouge Advocate. He later pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of aggravated assault with a firearm.
During his August 2017 sentencing, where he received a suspended 10-year prison term and was put on active supervised probation for three years, East Baton Rouge Parish Assistant District Attorney April Leon called him “a threat to society and the safety of others,” according to court documents obtained by the newspaper.
In February 2018, he was arrested in Tallahassee, Fla., after being wanted in connection with a domestic-related kidnapping in Waycross, The Associated Press reported. This incident prompted a judge did add conditions to his probation, the Advocate reported.
