A lawyer for one of Young Thug’s co-defendants claimed on Monday that a deputy assaulted her client (January 23).
Attorney Angela D’Williams told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that a Fulton County deputy punched her client Rodalius Ryan in the head. The incident happened during the jury selection phase of Young Thug’s RICO trial.
“I will be filing a formal complaint against the [sheriff’s office] because they are agitating my client on purpose and when he gets to court agitated, they act like they don’t know what’s going on,” D’Williams declared.
According to WSB-TV, Sheriff Pat Labat accused Ryan of spitting in the face of a deputy. Ryan is accused of spitting in the back of a patrol car while waiting to be transported from jail to the courthouse.
Ryan was not present in court on Monday morning when Young Thug and their YSL co-defendants appeared. Ryan’s lawyer stated that he required medical attention following the alleged assault.
“He was punched in the head and he did fall on the sidewalk,” D’Williams explained. “I wanted him to be checked for a concussion.”
An incident report said Deputy Kandakai Morris instructed Ryan to stop spitting or clean up the mess. The YSL member allegedly responded, “I ain’t cleaning up s###.”
Ryan spit in Morris’ face then the deputy attempted to remove Young Thug’s co-defendant from the vehicle. Ryan refused to exit the car and tried to make it difficult to grab him.
The deputy pulled Ryan out of the vehicle and put him on the ground. Ryan’s lawyer called for an investigation, suggesting the deputy became physical before giving her client a chance to get out of the car on his own.
“All deputies are supposed to wear body cameras,” D’Williams said. “When the discovery comes out, we’ll see the body cameras and we’ll see what happened.”
Ryan is already serving a life sentence for murder. He faces one count of violating Georgia’s RICO act in the case against Young Thug and other YSL members.
